Tasting notes:
‘The Boillot family purchased this parcel in 2008 and replanted it, and a decade later, the 2018 Pommard 1er Cru Clos Blanc is making a fine debut in the portfolio. Bursting with aromas of plums, berries, cassis and blood orange, it’s medium to full-bodied, velvety and ample, with good concentration, succulent acids and the powdery tannins that are the signature of the vintage at this address. This bottling marks a move away from négociant purchases in Pommard for Boillot. 2025 – 2045.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100

‘From a parcel purchased in 2007 and replanted; 2018 will be the first vintage where this has been declared under its own name as it was previously blended. This is riper still and there is a touch of prune character to the plummy dark berry fruit scents. The bigger but notably less refined flavors possess a caressing mid-palate that contrasts markedly with the robust and muscular finish that offers very good depth and persistence. While the tannins are firm there is sufficient dry extract to suggest that this could be approached after only 5-ish years. 2030+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound, 91/100

About Domaine Henri Boillot:
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
