This "Clos de Vougeot" Grand Cru is muscly and powerful.

In one generation, Henri Boillot has dramatically increased the quality of his Domaine wines and created a boutique négoce of the highest reputation. The wines, honed by Henri’s prodigious talent, display such a high level of detail and complexity that it is fair to say that they are among the very best representatives of Burgundy’s finest. The Clos Vougeot is from a small parcel of land located on the top part of Clos de Vougeot called Grand Maupertui.

The nose is complex with notes of hummus, black and green tealeaves and red to dark fruit. On the palate, the Clos Vougeot is ample, nicely structured with silky but firm tannins and a lingering finish. It can be paired with game meat, beef burgundy, coq au vin and cow’s milk cheese. It needs six to eight years to show its full complexity and can be cellared until 2035 and beyond. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This is another vineyard where the Boillots excel. The Clos Vougeot from the top part of this big Grand Cru climat* is outstanding of complexity. It is strong, muscly and refined. It is one of the greatest of the appellation."

*Climat – refers to named plots of vineyard.

At Domaine Henri Boillot, the work done in the vineyard is meticulous, following organic practices and aiming to achieve very low yields to naturally concentrate the fruit. The grapes are sorted in the vineyard and harvested by hand. Arriving at the Domaine, the grapes are sorted again and then traditional practices are used to make the wine. However, Henri and his son Guillaume make sure that the must* and then the wine is never overworked. They intervene as little as possible to preserve the essence of the terroir’s identity.

*Must is the term for freshly pressed juice that for a red wine contains the skins, seeds and stems of the fruit. For a white wine must only refers to the juice.
