Henri Boillot, Meursault 750ml 2016France, Burgundy
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
'Notes of mineral reduction, hazelnut, acacia blossom and lemon can be found on the expressive nose. The racy, intense and ultra-pure flavors possess excellent depth and persistence on the notably dry finale. A lovely villages.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 89/100
'Bright yellow with touches of green. On the nose is an overtone of white flower, apricot, lightly toasted. The palate is vigorous, rich and concentrated with a dense minerality. Ample and well-balanced, with a long finish.' – Winemaker
