Quite rich; there's a nutty side to this, grillé, savoury, fresh and pure. Well done! L&S (Jan 2014)

*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

A pungent nose of straw, citrus peel and pear scents introduces detailed and more vibrant medium weight flavors that display fine length on the moderatley dry, clean and delicious finish where a touch of minerality adds a sense of lift. 2016+ Rating: 89 Allen Meadows, (Jun 2014)

Bright, pale medium yellow. Stone fruit aromas are complicated by a slightly funky leesy element. Then smooth and sweet in the mouth, with ripe stone fruit flavors complicated by a saline quality. Finishes lemony and dry, with a lightly tannic suggestion. The crop level here was just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Boillot.

Domaine Henri Boillot

A top producer for red and white alike. Henri and his son Guillaume have now moved all the vinification and élevage out of Volnay entirely in order to have all the wine in one place (down on the plain in Meursault). Not so 'folklorique', but a better tool to reach even higher quality levels. After six years working alongside Henri, Guillaume has been entirely responsible for the vinification of the reds since 2013 - Henri's contribution is henceforth entirely on the whites, but one senses this is really Guillaume's show now. Guillaume's major input on the reds was to end the practice of autmatically de-stemming everything - there is now some use of whole bunches and the wines have gained in definition and energy as a result, without losing the luxurious velvety richness and fruit depth that they have always had.
