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.
(20% of the blend is from Santenay, 70% is from Volnay villages level vineyards and the remaining 10% is from a Bourgogne vineyard situated in Volnay). There is a mild touch of reduction to the nose though by contrast there is good punch and detail to the very fresh middle weight flavors that possess fine quality for its level. To enjoy young. 2017+ Rating: 87 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2015)
The 2013 Bourgogne Rouge, which sees 20% new oak, has a deep ruby color. The bouquet is quite concentrated with macerated small red cherries and blackberry, the palate tannic and a little dry, with firm tannins and black fruit on the slightly austere finish. This just needs to "loosen its tie." Drinking range: 2015 - 2018 Rating: 85-87 Neal Martin, www.robertparker.com (Dec 2014)
