The fattest of the Premiers Crus, which comes as no surprise, powerful but still streamlined and mineral. A touch of flattering sweetness to the fruit, a tropical exoticism, but it is restrained and fine too, and on the finish stays on the elegant side, clean, lean and long. L&S (Dec 2009)

Pure nose hints at orange oil and grilled nuts. Then densely packed, sweet and penetrating, with a high pitch and lovely inner-mouth perfume to the orange oil and lemon peel flavors. Finishes long, perfumed and classically dry, with excellent citric lift and energy. Rating: 92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Sep 2010)

This has a taut, minerally nose: well defined, stone, flint – wonderful Puligny…dewy morning lawn. The palate has good weight and tension, lime zest, green apple, a touch of spice, a little viscous towards the finish, great length and powerful. Superb. 2012-2020.

Low-key nose with the merest whiff of linseed. Lots of guts on the palate. Quite showy but a flattering drink that certainly isn’t sweet in any New World way. 2011-2016 Rating: 17.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2010)

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.
