Richly joyous - very deep with broad shoulders but also a great lift here. Surprisingly bright. Gentle weight but super persistence and energy. Incredible balance between the breadth and the brightness. still fairly tight core of gorgeous fruit, this is clever and very good. L&S (Oct 2018)

(one contiguous parcel measuring about .24 ha is spread evenly between Chassagne and Puligny; Boillot calls it his Bâtard du Milieu!). A background application of wood frames the ripe, fresh and complex aromas that flash just a whiff of exoticism on the white and yellow peach, tangerine and spiced tea-scented nose. There is plenty of sap present on the big-bodied flavors that are more mineral-driven than usual while exhibiting outstanding length on the bone dry and impressively long and youthfully austere finale. This is an elegant yet powerful Bâtard. Drinking range: 2029 - Rating: 95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Jun 2019)
From vines that straddle the border of Chassagne and Puligny and which run from the top to the bottom of the appellation, the 2017 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is superb, wafting from the glass with notes of ripe citrus, beeswax, dried flowers, hazelnut paste and fresh pear. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied deep and concentrated, with a broad-shouldered, layered core that's liberally endowed with chewy extract, yet a sense of elegance and purity that marks this out as one of the finest renditions of Bâtard-Montrachet to be found along the Côte.

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
