'There is enough reduction to overshadow the underlying fruit at present so if you're going to try a bottle before 2 to 3 years, I would advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is a beguiling sense of energy suffusing the medium-bodied flavors that possess a succulent mid-palate which contrasts somewhat with the bone-dry and youthfully austere finale. This is both classy and very stylish and a wine that should age gracefully. Drink 2031+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 95/100

'The 2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles exhibits aromas of orange oil, toasted nuts, pear and white flowers, framed by a deft touch of new oak. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit and bright girdling acids, it concludes with a precise, mouthwatering finish. Drink 2024-2044.' – William Kelly, Wine Advocate, 93/100

'Purchased fruit from a marvellous site, this comes from 60-year-old vines located next to the Leflaive holding. After a slow fermentation, the wine is aged just over one year in cask (60% new) to give a wine of impressive substance. Initially a bit restrained, it opens up on the palate to show plenty of substance and depth, with a texture that remains silky and luminously fresh, in spite of the extract and ripeness here. Drinking Window 2021 - 2029.' – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 93/100

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’.
