Tasting notes:
‘Boillot’s emblematic 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère has turned out brilliantly, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, hazelnut, dried white flowers, citrus oil, blanched almonds and smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with terrific concentration, searing levels of extract and a long, mineral finish. 2025 – 2045.’ – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 95/100

‘From 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières. A whiff of matchstick is present on the elegant and highly restrained aromas of acacia blossom, spice, white orchard fruit and a hint of Asian-style tea. There is excellent volume and minerality to the strikingly textured medium-bodied flavors that display outstanding complexity on the balanced, dry and impressively persistent finish. This is one very classy wine that is already wonderfully harmonious. 2028+.’ – Allen Meadows, Burghound, 94/100

‘The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère 1er Cru has a fresh and detailed bouquet that conveys more energy than the Meursault Genevrières. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, lightly spiced with admirable depth and a tang of sea salt towards the finish. This is a wellcrafted Puligny that should give 12-15 years of drinking pleasure. 2022 – 2034.’ – Neal Martin, Vinous, 92/100

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
