2016 1er Cru Genevrières Domaine Henri Boillot
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Broader, richer feel. Delivers beautifully. This is impressive! Weightier, richer - with just enough minerality and drive. Good. L&S (Oct 2017)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Pale, bright yellow. A sexy essence of Meursault on the nose, offering aromas of lemon, lime, fresh apricot, pear, hazelnut and smoke. Thick and solid yet racy as well, with a strong element of salty minerality currently dominating in the middle palate. This seamless but very laid-back wine finishes with outstanding mounting length. Drinking range: 2023 - 2031 Rating: 93+ Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Sep 2018)
An overtly smoky nose features exotically spiced aromas of tea, pear, apple and acacia blossom. The beautifully detailed, stony and delicious flavors possess a highly sophisticated mouth feel before concluding in a beautifully persistent finish. A classic Genevrières of style and grace. Drinking range: 2024 - Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2018)
Suitably broad and ripe in style, but more lean and precise than the buttery Meursaults of old. Tense, vivid, flavoursome. Drinking range: 2018 - 2031 Rating: 17.5 Richard Hemming MW - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2018)
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.
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
