‘The 2021 vintage represents continued strong performance for Boillot with his recently-acquired clos within premier cru Les Cras. The wine shows ripe green apple and lemon peel aromas with intense minerality and hints of acacia and marzipan. The texture is lively and fresh, but there is enough extract to ensure a lingering finish. The grapes come from sixty-year-old vines purchased in 2019 from Henri Darnat that are planted in this southeast-facing vineyard between Les Plures (thus Volnay Santenots) and the village of Monthélie. 2025-2040’ – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 94/100

‘Wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, clear honey, buttery pastry, toasted nuts and white flowers, the 2021 Meursault 1er Cru Clos Richemont is medium to full-bodied, satiny and ample, with racy acids and a long, mineral finish. This site has performed well in this cooler vintage.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 91-93/100

‘The 2021 Meursault Clos Richemont 1er Cru shows good depth and pliancy, especially within the context of the year. Scents of apricot, white flowers, spice, butter and hazelnut open first, followed by a kick of tropical overtones that develop later. I very much like the inner core of strength here. 2024-2031’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 90-92/100

Producer information Based in Meursault, between the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay, Henri Boillot is at the epicentre of great winemaking. The Boillots have been tending vines and making wines since 1885. Henri joined in 1975, bought out his siblings in 2005 and his son, Guillaume, joined in 2008. It totals 19 hectares, with roughly equal surfaces of red and white. Included herein, is 4 hectares of the famous Monopole vineyard of Clos de la Mouchère which has developed a cult following. In a very short space of time, they’ve built an extraordinary reputation for the sheer quality of their Burgundy wines, it is no surprise that Allen Meadows thinks this superstar producer ‘has arguably become the finest pure négoce specializing in white Burgundy today’.

‘Henri Boillot is often quoted as the best white wine négociant in Burgundy and there is no quality difference between his négociant and domaine wines. His son Guillaume is now in charge of the reds, which have seemingly become more elegant, pure and ethereal.’ – Roland Peens
