2013 1er Cru Truffières Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Tasted blind at the annual “Burgfest” tasting in Bouilland. The 2013 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru la Truffière has a very composed and refined bouquet, laden with attractive cold stone/wet limestone scents that gain intensity with aeration. The palate is well balanced with vibrant acidity, plenty of red apple, citrus lemon and stony notes, class and sophistication on the finish. Très Puligny ... and that's what we want. Drinking range: 2016 - 2026 Rating: 91-91 L&S (May 2016)
*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Nose quite exotic, guava, pineapple perhaps, but what is striking is its svelte shape, beautifully formed at it starts with a tight point, broadens across the palate smoothly, and then tapers off on a long fine finish. Drinking range: 2016 - 2022 L&S (Dec 2014)
Pale, bright yellow. Musky, complex aromas of white peach, flowers and flint. Wonderfully sweet but tight, with bracing acidity keeping the wine's fruit under wraps today. In a distinctly linear style, with noteworthy precision and energy, but youthfully strict today, finishing with a tannic edge. This discreet but highly concentrated wine needs time. Drinking range: 2021 - 2028 Rating: 93+? Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Sep 2015)
Bright, pale yellow. White peach, lemon and minerals on the nose. Juicy, tight and brisk, showing very good intensity but little easy sweetness to the lemon and mineral flavors. Rating: 90-92 Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (Sep 2014)
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.
