Vineyard Chevrets

After the Fremiets there is immediately more texture, more grip here. A good feel and some nicely ripe fruit. Yes again there is the glycerine like texture to the fruit core, but the darker notes and the grip begin to build in the mouth, black fruits compete with the softly ripe red berries. An impressive Chevrets, dark and brooding but very suave. Drinking range: 2020 - 2026 L&S (Oct 2018)

(from 25+ year old vines). An elegant, airy and cool nose is also attractively perfumed and is composed of essence of red cherry, lavender and soft spice aromas. The elegant, even lilting middle weight flavors evidence notably more minerality on the wonderfully textured, refined and well-balanced finale. This is a lovely Chevrets fashioned in a style that should permit reasonably early accessibility. Drinking range: 2023 - Rating: 91 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2019)

Pale garnet. Fresh redcurrants on the nose. Sweet start but well focused and a focus on freshness. Easy balance. Nothing in excess. Drinking range: 2023 - 2032 Rating: 16.5 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Jan 2019)

Wafting from the glass with aromas of small red berries, raw cocoa and rose petal, the 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Chevrets is medium to full-bodied, melting and satiny, with a gourmand core of fleshy and succulent tannins that largely conceals its structuring tannins, balanced by an animating line of acidity. Rating: 90-92 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate(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
