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)

Full medium yellow. Knockout nose combines soft citrus and yellow stone fruits, flowers and pungent minerality. Big, smooth, mouthfilling wine, with its uncanny volume given shape and lift by pronounced minerality. Finishes extremely long and tactile but not at all dry, leaving behind a tannic impression and palate-staining apricot and yellow peach fruit. Boillot routinely chills his grapes but in 2015 most of his wines started to ferment very quickly. He added that he brought in a good percentage of his Chardonnay between August 25 and 27, just before the brutally hot weekend at the end of the month, then picked his Pinot Noir in September.

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 MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)

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
