Openly aromatic, showing ripe and with a lovely enveloping, appetising yellow fruit - ripe peach - but also a calls to mind fine leather in aroma as well a the supple, rich feel. Immense class, balance and length. Drinking range: 2017 - 2022 L&S (Nov 2014)

Medium straw-yellow. Musky aromas of peach, apricot and ginger; more soil-driven and less exotic than the village Puligny. Supple, silky and highly concentrated, offering extremely smooth flavors of stone fruits and flowers. An outstanding 2013 with a very long, pliant back end. Boillot describes this as "the best wine of the cave in 2013." He allowed the wine to settle in cuve for two months, including a month following the fining, "to de-stress the wine," bottling it last December.

(from 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières). The restrained nose of ultra-pure, airy and cool notes of white flower, pear, green apple and freshly sliced citrus fruit is trimmed in barely discernible hints of pain grillé. The driving middle weight flavors possess good richness though the firm acid spine is such that there is no lack of detail or delineation to the lilting and seductively-textured finish that is dry, beautifully persistent and slightly austere. This is also going to need a few years of cellaring first to harmonize and develop further depth. 2020+ Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2015)
An old favourite… Dense and rich with a top note of struck matches...I can’t see how anyone would fail to be pleased by this – at a price. Okay, it’s not subtle but… Long. Drinking range: 2017 - 2026 Rating: 18 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2015)

Pale light yellow. Sexy aromas and flavors of peach, acacia flower, smoke and clove. Rich in extract, smooth and dry (under one gram per liter r.s.), gaining thickness toward the back without any loss of harmony. Utterly smooth, extract-rich wine with superb persistence. The combination of dryness and gras is extraordinary. Another premier cru at grand cru level in this cellar. Rating: 93-96 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
