2005 1er Cru Combettes Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Good expressive nose. The palate is a mix of the freshness of the Champ Canet and the oily richness of the Referts - and it's a good compromise. Big and powerful as usual. L&S (Nov 2006)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Pure aromas of peach, apricot, almond and hazelnut. Suave, subtle and rich; less generous today than the Referts but this has more tension and grip. Finishes fairly dry but long and pure. Rating: 90-93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Nov 2006)
Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
Jean-Marc Boillot left the family domaine to be winemaker to Olivier Leflaive for five years. Then from his maternal grandfather Étienne Sauzet he inherited much of the vineyard of the old Domaine Sauzet, in some of the best vineyards of Puligny, and with this holding and others from his paternal side, he set up his own business. He makes wines that show well young, with complex exotic fruit aromas with the core of minerality, but they age well too. His daughter Lydie and son are now taking a more active role in the domaine, and they have branched out with a thriving négociant business and a property near the Pic Saint Loup in the Languedoc - Domaine des Roques.
