The 2010 Volnay Les Chevrets emerges from the glass with a sweet, perfumed bouquet that melds into expressive dark fruit. This is a fairly immediate Volnay that should drink well with minimum cellaring despite its considerable energy and fleshiness. Floral notes add lift on the refined, chiseled finish. Rating: 90-92 Antonio Galloni, www.vinous.com(Nov 2013)

(from 25+ year old vines). This is perhaps the most elegant wine in the range with its plum, raspberry, cool red currant and agreeably spicy nose. The medium-bodied flavors possess a wonderfully silky and seductive mouth feel as the supporting tannins are exceptionally fine, all wrapped in a pure and lacy finish. This is very much cut from the cloth of classic Volnay as it is most decidedly a wine of finesse. In a word, gorgeous. 2018+ Rating: 92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2012)

Deep ruby-red. Blackberry, violet and bitter chocolate on the nose. Silky on entry, then tighter on the palate than the village wine, showing less obvious sweetness in the early going. But in spite of the wine's very firm acidity, the tannins are fine and coat the mouth slowly and inexorably. Rating: 90 - 93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Jan 2012)

Rating: 17.5 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com(Jan 2012)

Mid crimson. Intense and cleverly sculpted. Lots here in excellent balance. Dry finish. There’s a real beginning, middle and end to this wine. Bitter cherries. 2017-2025 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2012)

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
