2011 1er Cru Fremiets Domaine Henri Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Lovely expression. Fresh and black and taut and cool. Coal-black tannins give a background to the damson fruit, which also has a very fresh raspberry top-note. The tannins are fine and the balance gorgeous. L&S (Dec 2012)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This is also exceptionally elegant and pure with spicy plum and cassis aromas that give way to notably firmer and more muscular flavors that possess fine volume and plenty of punch on the mineral-permeated and wonderfully persistent finish. As good as the Chevret is, there is just more material and depth present here. 2019+ Rating: 92 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2013)
Deep red-ruby. Highly perfumed, musky aromas of black raspberry and smoky minerality. Large-scaled, round and rich but not yet complex; less creamy and fine-grained than the Chevrets, showing a youthful toughness from the calcaire-rich soil. Despite the fact that this was the first pinot parcel Boillot picked in 2011, this wine relies more on its big, ripe tannins than on its acids for balance. Really saturates the palate on the aftertaste. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Feb 2013)

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.
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
