Greener colour than the Pucelles tasted before. Fresh and positive, a tiny point of sweetness giving way to intense mineral drive. Quite dense, quite closed, slightly saline - a lovely balance. Really nice progression through the palate and lovely length. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 L&S (Nov 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.

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.

Rating: 17.5+ Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Feb 2017)

Mouth-filling fruit - really juicy and distinct. Simply tremendous - gets all the savoury mineral flair of Puligny with great fruit clarity. Drinking range: 2017 - 2024 Rating: 17.5 Richard Hemming - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2017)
