2015 1er Cru Referts Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Fat and supple, a very smooth richness. Ripe and sunny, sleek of texture, lots more flavour to come in all this ripeness, and good length. Drinking range: 2019 - 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.
Bright, light yellow. Lively scents of lemon zest and clove, with a touch of leesy reduction. Silky and fine-grained, with white peach and lemon flavors nicely framed by harmonious acidity. The Garenne is more generous than this wine, noted Jean-Marc Boillot, but the Referts has been finer and more elegant since the end of the fermentation. A very suave 2015 with an impression of delicacy, in spite of its alcohol close to 14%. Drinking range: 2018 - 2025 Rating: 92 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com(Sep 2017)

More refined than most from this stable. Lots to contemplate and chew on. But a bitter note at the end. Drink 2020-2026 Drinking range: 2020 - 2026 Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2017)
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.
