'More reserved than the Chevrets, Boillot's 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets mingles scents of raspberries and plums with hints of rose petals and spices. Medium-bodied, tangy and mineral, with a pretty core of fruit and fine, powdery tannins, it will reward a bit of bottle age. Drink 2025-2045.' – William Kelly, Wine Advocate, 92+/100

'A slightly riper and even spicier if slightly less elegant aromas of violet and plum introduce bigger, richer and more powerful flavors that still manage to remain refined and particularly so on the stony, youthfully austere and impressively long finish. As is often the case with a fine Frémiets, this should repay 10 to 12 years of cellaring while being accessible after only 5 or so. Lovely. Drink 2029+.' – Allen Meadows, Burghound.com, 92/100

'The 2019 Volnay Fremiets 1er Cru has a delightful bouquet with vivacious Morello cherry and blueberry aromas underpinned by fine mineralité. The palate is well balanced with quite a spicy entry, a fine bead of acidity, finely structured but showing a slightly feral finish. I can abide that - this is a fine and dare I say, "fun" Volnay from Boillot. Drink 2023-2035.' – Neal Martin, Vinous, 91-93/100

'The domaine-owned parcel of Frémiets is more than 50 years of age. The wine is fermented in small oak casks, 50% new., and it seems to overpower the wine a bit; there is ripe black fruit, but I find the smoky aromas a bit intrusive and the tannins a bit over the top for a Volnay. Drinking Window 2024 - 2034.' – Charles Curtis MW, Decanter, 90/100

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’.
