'Altogether on another register - all in delicacy' says Guillaume, and indeed that's it. So fresh, so delicate in its light touch on the palate - you'd say soft, but it's still direct, pure. Very hard not to swallow as the gourmandise of the blackcurrant and blackberry unfurl in the mouth and gain in interest and sheer deliciousness, propelled by perfect acid balance. Drinking range: 2028 - 2040 L&S (Nov 2020)

(from Chambolle fruit). This too is quite aromatically cool and restrained with its combination of essence of red currant, cherry, lavender, soft spice elements and admirably subtle wood. The juicy and impressively concentrated flavors flash excellent intensity and focused power while displaying the same gorgeous texture as the Echézeaux, all wrapped in a hugely long, serious and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is beautifully refined, indeed while it may seem like an oxymoron given Bonnes Mares’ well-deserved reputation for power and muscle, this is more a wine of finesse. Even so, this should have no trouble aging and improving for close to 20 years. Drinking range: 2036 - Rating: 95 Allen Meadows, (Apr 2021)

The 2019 Bonnes-Mares Grand Cru is beautiful, mingling notions of red plums and raspberries with hints of rose petals, orange rind and warm spices, framed by a deft application of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, bright and concentrated, it has lively acids, ripe tannins and a long, elegantly chalky finish. Fine-boned and vibrant, this has turned out very well indeed.

Deep purple colour. As for the last several years, the bouquet is sensational, with more vibrations and nuances even than the Chambertins. Two barrels were made, both new, but with different chauffes applied. Absolutely complete, raspberry, myrtle, lightest coating of cream from the barrel. It seems fuller than the Chambertins. Brilliant length. Many congratulations to Guillaume Boillot. Tasted: October 2020 ***** Rating: 95-98 Jasper Morris - Inside Burgundy  (Oct 2020)

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
