So silky and fresh it could almost be a white wine - the minerality of the soil gives it a purity and length - and a lovely long taut finish. Very elegant. Drinking range: 2024 - 2035 L&S (Oct 2020)

(from a .60 ha parcel). Here the pure and ripe nose offers yet another level of spiciness that includes clove, anise and sandalwood that adds breadth of the aromas of black raspberry, violet, rose petal and tea. The super-sleek, intense and mineral-driven flavors possess excellent delineation while delivering outstanding length on the classy, focused and balanced finale. At least 6 to 8 years of cellaring is recommended. Drinking range: 2031 - Rating: 93 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2021)

One of my favorite wines in the cellar is the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets, a lovely cuvée that wafts from the glass with notes of plums, rose petals, sweet berry fruit, raw cocoa and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it's sapid and concentrated, with refined tannins and a long, saline finish. Drinking range: 2025 - 2050 Rating: 94 William Kelley, The Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)

Another very dark purple and a little bit of heat on the nose, but this is more restrained and less voluptuous than the Volnay Fremiets. Gorgeous energy here, with aromatics of dried roses, Guillaume suggests, but more vibrant. Very intense at the back of the palate, now with raspberry and blackcurrant notes, very good structural tannins, and fine length. Tasted: October 2020 **** Rating: 92-95 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
