(from a parcel purchased in 2007 and replanted; 2018 was the first vintage where this has been declared under its own name as it was previously blended). A cool, pure if very restrained nose features a pretty mix of red and dark currant and earth nuances that are trimmed in just enough menthol and wood toast to mention. There is again very fine volume to the sappy, rich and powerful medium-bodied flavors that, much like the Frémiets, remain relatively refined before culminating in a dusty, saline and beautifully persistent finish. This is lovely and it’s not so structured that it couldn’t be approached after only 5 or so years. Drinking range: 2027 - Rating: 90 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2021)

The second vintage of this new domaine bottling chez Boillot, the 2019 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Blanc offers up lovely aromas of rose petals, spices, raw cocoa, sweet berry fruit and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, rich and muscular, with lively acids and ample reserves of powdery tannin, it's a touch more serious and reserved than its 2018 sibling was at the same stage. Drinking range: 2025 - 2045 Rating: 92+ William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

Planted 2012, with just three barrels made from a third of a hectare, as these young vines were green harvested to keep crop levels low. Glowing mid purple. Medium plus density given the youth of the vines, but obviously a really fine plant material. This appellation will join the pantheon of top class Boillot reds in due course as the vines age – there is already considerable promise.
