Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières from Henri Boillot took time to unfold in the glass, but eventually reveals attractive lime flower, cold granite and yellow flower scents, later accompanied by acacia honey. The palate is well balanced with crisp acidity. There is just the right amount of bitter lemon here that imparts tension from start to finish, leading to a composed finish with a salinity that begs another sip. Quite simply, a delicious Meursault.

Medium straw-yellow. Aromas of orange oil and hazelnut, plus a musky note of porcini. Fat and plush on entry, then still a bit tight in the middle palate, showing a flavor of apricot. Finishes broad and perhaps deceptively open-knit, without quite the energy of the 2014 version. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 91 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2015)
Mild reduction can’t completely hide the slightly exotic and strikingly elegant aromas of spiced tea, lemon-lime, white peach, pear and acacia blossom aromas. There is first-rated detail to the ultra-intense and cuts-like-a-knife medium weight flavors that exude plenty of minerality on the bone dry, complex and wonderfully persistent finish. This beauty of a Genevrières is impressive in every respect and should amply reward mid-term cellaring. 2021+ Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2015)
Pale yellow. Pure aromas of soft citrus and stone fruits, hazelnut and spices. A step up in concentration and vivacity from the Charmes, without quite the breadth of that wine but with better focus. Sexy stone fruit and spice flavors are energized and given precision by saline minerality. Classy juice. Finishes long and perfumed. Rating: 91-93 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar(Sep 2014)
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
