Surprisingly rich colour, dumb on the nose, but the palate is another thing again, rich nearly exotic, full of citrus and ripe white fruits, fleshy and powerful, a real surprise in style in the vintage. As usual it is extraordinary how this Clos, which is entirely within Perrières, is different from the cuvée from without. Brilliant wine. L&S (Dec 2008)

Absolutely yummy! (Feb 2011)(Feb 2011)
(from 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières). An almost invisible touch of wood influence allows the elegant, ripe and ultra pure aromas of citrus blossom, spice and orchard fruit to have center stage while the focused, textured and almost painfully intense flavors culminate in a bone dry, silky and seriously long finish. As good as the Perrières is, and it’s indeed very good, there is simply another dimension present here. Along with the Pucelles, this is highly recommended. 2013+ Rating: 94-94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2009)
Drink 2011-14 Pretty big and mealy and inexpressive for the moment though there is no shortage of mass here! Rich and explosive – should be pretty good eventually. Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2009)
(these 68-year-old vines produced just 35 hectoliters per hectare in 2007) Peach, spices and minerals on the nose. Dense and creamy but quite dry in the mouth, with deep, nuanced flavors of yellow peach, apple and spices. Rating: 89-92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Dec 2008)
Domaine Henri Boillot
A domaine which dates to 1885, but which began properly in the early years of the 20th century under the current Henri's grandfather (also Henri). His son, Jean, was the one who really developed it. Henri arrived in 1975 and worked his way up, becoming the winemaker. In 2000 he began the building of the new winery at the bottom of Meursault, and he then bought out his brother and sister to keep the domaine as one, renaming it from 'Domaine Jean Boillot' to 'Domaine Henri Boillot' to avoid confusion with his brother Jean-Marc's domaine.
After six years working alongside his father, Guillaume is the 'chef de culture', i.e. heads up the vineyard team, and has been entirely responsible for the vinification of the reds since 2012. Henri continues to make the whites which he likes to be 'straight, taut, precise, pure and elegant'. Guillaume's input has resulted in red wines that have gained in definition and energy, without losing the luxurious velvety richness and fruit depth that they have always had.
The Domaine totals around 14 hectares, with roughly equal surfaces of red and white, and of which just under 4ha is the Monopole vineyard of Clos de la Mouchère, a walled enclave within the premier Cru Puligny Perrières. The 2017 vintage saw the arrival of two new parcels of Grand Cru red, in Échezeaux and Latricières Chambertin
