2014 Domaine Henri Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Partly Bourgognes from Chassagne and Volnay, and partly village level fruit from Marsannay. More Côte de Beaune in style than anything else, beautifully done: saline and energetic - lots of juice. Gourmand. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 2015)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A pretty and exceptionally fresh nose combines notes of various red berries, earth and discreet spice nuances. There is both good punch and volume to the solidly concentrated flavors that display fine length and an appealing touch of salinity on the balanced and lingering finish. This would make an excellent choice for a house red that should be capable of rewarding a few years of cellaring. 2018+ Rating: 87 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2016)
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.
