Colour Red
Origin France, Burgundy
District Côte d'Or

Village Volnay
Classification 1er Cru
Vineyard Caillerets

The Caillerets is the most serious of the Boillots' Volnays and it is all fermented in barrel. Which are specially modified to have big holes to get the grapes in and out. The nose has violets and deep red flesh of plum and some damson skin pep too. Lively and higher-toned than the Fremiets or Chevret. More ethereal with its flow - but the fruit is beautifully weighted and so satisfying. Gorgeous dark notes keep this feeling more serious but is is really good and full of pleasure. Drinking range: 2020 - 2027 L&S (Oct 2018)

(from a .60 ha parcel). A whiff of spiced herbal tea sits atop the array of naturally exotic red and dark pinot fruit where an interesting hint of tangerine skin lurks in the background. The round, rich and very seductively textured medium weight flavors brim with minerality on the complex and beautifully persistent finish. This moderately firm effort possesses unusually good density for the vintage and is a wine to consider. 93/2027+ Drinking range: 2027 - Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2019)

The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets displays pretty aromas of cassis and blackberries that mingle with wood smoke, spices, rich soil and dried flowers in a complex bouquet that's deftly framed by toasty new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and layered, with good concentration and depth and a fine-grained chassis of tannin. Rating: 92-94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(Jan 2019)

The 2017 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru is the first vintage to be vinified "intégrale". It has a very pure bouquet with black cherries and blue fruit, although I find that the Les Fremiets has more identification of place by comparison. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, very well balanced with seductive pure dark cherries, blackcurrant and discrete spicy notes towards the poised finish. Once the aromatics express their place of origin this will be very fine. Drinking range: 2022 - 2037 Rating: 91-93 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com(Jan 2019)

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
