(from En Orveaux). Deft but not imperceptible wood influence surrounds the overtly spicy aromas of violet, tea, red and blue pinot fruit and a whiff of mandarin orange peel. The wonderfully fresh and vibrant medium weight plus flavors possess a gorgeous texture on the saline, youthfully austere and mouthcoating finish. This is clearly built to age, yet the balance is so fine that it could very likely be enjoyed on the younger side. Drinking range: 2034 - Rating: 94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2021)

The 2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of cherries, black raspberries, sweet oil tones, licorice and orange oil. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, its broad, textural attack segues into an ample, lively mid-palate, concluding with a long, flavorful finish. Sourced from En Orveaux, this is only the third vintage Boillot has produced of this new cuvée. Drinking range: 2025 - 2050 Rating: 94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

Rich mid purple, more delicacy to the nose. This has a purer deep red cherry fruit, more even across the palate, possible lacking in lacy detail, but very promising nonetheless. Enough tannins to balance the rich style of fruit Orveaux. I think it may be the weight of fruit, which is covering up the detail, which will subsequently emerge.

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
