PULIGNY MONTRACHET

2017 Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

EN PRIMEUR

The fruit for this super 'Village' wine comes from 7 parcels, all in same sector, on the Chassagne side - 5 are in Enseignères, 1 in Les Meix, 1 in Rue Rousseau. Fresh and clean. Nicely Puligny Montrachet in feel and attack but broader than some. The fruit is richly ripe - but there is a good drive and almost iodine edge that keeps it focused. Feel is sweeter though and there is a great sleekness to the flow. A well balanced, pleasing Puligny. Drinking range: 2020 - 2025L&S(Oct 2018)

Another beautiful wine from this estate is the 2017 Puligny-Montrachet, a beautifully layered, elegant white that shines on all accounts. Crisp citrus, stone fruits, white flowers, and a liquid rock-like minerality all define the bouquet, and it’s medium-bodied, pure, and textured on the palate. It has everything in the right place, is balanced, and is going to evolve nicely for 7-8 years, if not longer. Drinking range: 2019 - 2026 Rating: 91-91 Jeb Dunnuck, www.jebdunnuck.com(Apr 2019)

Smoky, rich – that J-M Boillot allure – with a sweet start and some very obvious spiciness. Not cheap but definitely a wine that would impress anyone. Drinking range: 2019 - 2025 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2019)

All of Jean-Marc Boillot’s wines looked impressive, with the aforementioned Montagny being a must buy, but of the Puligny fleet, I liked both the perfectly balanced 2017 Puligny-Montrachet and also the lusty, Grand Cru-shaped 2017 Puligny-Montrachet, 1er Cru La Truffière.

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.

STORAGE OPTIONS:

Wines bought en primeur are scheduled to arrive in the UK over the course of the next eighteen months. If you do not wish to take home delivery, you may wish to consider where you would like the wines shipped on arrival in the UK. Lea & Sandeman offers duty paid and in bond storage through a dedicated storage company called Elephant Storage. For more details on the terms and fees associated with storage please go to our Storage Homepage or contact our primeurs team for more information.

While helpful, we do not require a firm commitment on delivery destination to process your primeur order at this stage. Our team will be in contact with you when your wines arrive in the UK to confirm the necessary delivery details.

BURGUNDY EN PRIMEUR FAQ

OFFER: All wines are offered subject to availability and final confirmation.

PRICING: All prices are quoted IN BOND ex-VAT, by the case size stated. Please double check that the desired case size does match what is being offered as wines are variously listed in threes, sixes, dozens, halves and larger formats.

DELIVERY - TIMING: This is a primeur offer so the wines are not yet physically available for delivery. They will be shipped to the UK over the next eighteen months. Generally wines are shipped to your nominated location once the whole order has landed in our London City Bond account. If you require wines to be delivered by a certain date, please advise us at the time of ordering. We do not anticipate any problems but please be aware that delays to delivery may occur should Britain's possible departure from the European Union result in additional border customs checks or other regulatory requirements. Any additional or unforeseen duties, tariffs, charges or other financial liabilities relating to 'Brexit' must be due to the customer and will be added to orders as required.

DELIVERY - FEES: In bond delivery to an Elephant Storage account (for more information see 'Storage Options' opposite) is free of charge. Transfer of wines to any third party bond (i.e. not Elephant Storage) will incur an administration charge of £16.50 + VAT for all orders under £1,000. If you require wines duty paid, please indicate this in your Wishlist order form. A duty & VAT invoice will be raised once all the wines on your order are available for shipment. Once the relevant duty & VAT has been settled, we will ship the wines to your nominated address as per our normal duty paid Delivery Terms.

PAYMENT: All orders will be invoiced for immediate payment by cheque, cash, debit card or cleared funds to our account. We regret that we cannot accept credit cards for primeur orders. We reserve the right to apply a dunning charge of 2% per month on invoices unpaid after 30 days.
