2013 1er Cru Champ Canet Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Tighter and more mineral than the Referts, a hard stone character - a Chablis-like firmness for a Puligny, yet with an exotic side to the fruit too. Lovely pure cool length. Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 L&S (Nov 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.
Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
Jean-Marc Boillot left the family domaine to be winemaker to Olivier Leflaive for five years. Then from his maternal grandfather Étienne Sauzet he inherited much of the vineyard of the old Domaine Sauzet, in some of the best vineyards of Puligny, and with this holding and others from his paternal side, he set up his own business. He makes wines that show well young, with complex exotic fruit aromas with the core of minerality, but they age well too. His daughter Lydie and son are now taking a more active role in the domaine, and they have branched out with a thriving négociant business and a property near the Pic Saint Loup in the Languedoc - Domaine des Roques.
Pale yellow. Complex aromas of apple, lemon and spiced pear, lifted by a hint of exotic fruits that suggests a bit of noble rot. Rich, musky and plush, offering lovely concentration and an impression of sweetness and strong extract. The tiny crop of 25 hectoliters per hectare yielded a wine with a very high 13.6% natural alcohol. Plush, even thick, for the vintage.

Delicious aromas of dried fruit and stony fruit, very ripe on the palate but a lovely minerality and a citrus fruit finish, excellent definition Drinking range: 2016 - 2024 Rating: 93 Gerard Basset OBE MW MS, Decanter (Feb 2015)
Quite a rich start and full of intense fruit. I would posit that the village Puligny is much better value. Just a little overblown. Drink 2018-2025 Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
Apple, ripe citrus, plenty of depth and flesh. More complete than their Les Referts, though still staunchly savoury and therefore quite austere. Rating: 16.5 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2015)
Exuberant aromas of exotic fruits. Concentrated and dense, with a distinct impression of sucrosite leavened by strong acidity; the exotic fruit character carries through on the palate. Tactile, saline wine from a small crop. A step up in length from the foregoing samples, finishing with metallic and salty mineral nuances.
