2019 1er Cru Jean-Marc Boillot
As good as ever, a fat attack and some real richness on the nose, gathering mineral notes on the palate and finishing brightly - there's lots of concentration and volume even on the finish. Drinking range: 2021 - 2025 L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
The 2019 Montagny 1er Cru has a light and innocuous nose, touches of gravel and Alpine stream, almost Zen-like compared to the Pulignys. The palate is well balanced with veins of tropical fruit on the entry: lychee and passion fruit, leading to a weighty and rounded finish. For early consumption. Drinking range: 2021 - 2025 Rating: 87 Neal Martin, www.vinous.com (Jan 2021)
It is always a joy to taste these ultra-professional wines and the 2019 is no exception. Polished, long, vital and invigorating, this is a delicious and forward-drinking beauty. Rating: 17.5 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Jan 2021)
Super-precise and bursting with crunchy acidity and stony freshness, this is a marvellously energetic wine with a perfect nose and pretensions to a creamy palate. A great wine for short to medium term love and wonderfully blessed with Boillot’s stylish touch, this is a lip-smacking wine and it is stunning value, too. Rating: 17.5/20 Matthew Jukes www.matthewjukes.com (Dec 2020)
Jean-Marc's daughter Lydie and son-in-law François Alzingre have worked alongside him and effectively run the domaine, and are now being joined by their children. Alongside the wines from the family's own vineyards, They also run a successful négociant business, vinifying wines from the Côte Chalonnaise with huge aplomb. In Montagny in particular, the wine is the best we have found in the appellation, and remarkably consistent from year to year.
