This 1er Cru Poruzots Chardonnay is rich and has a lifted nose.

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. This vineyard is ideally located between the climats* “Genevrières” and “Les Bouchères”.

The Meursault 1er Cru “Les Poruzots” has a lifted nose of white flower, pear, some notes of gunpowder and a distinctive flavor of orange peel. The mouth feel is rich, dense with great details and a lingering finish. It can be paired with roast poultry and a large array of charcuterie and seafood, snails and frogs’ legs cooked in garlic butter. This Meursault 1er Cru can be cellared up until 2027 and beyond. You can drink it in its youth by decanting it 45 minutes before serving. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat - refers to named plots of vineyard.

"Henri Boillot excels with his white wine and his Meursault 1er Cru “Les Poruzots” is such a great example of the richness and approachability of this vineyard. It is a bit more exotic than its neighbours. An absolute beauty!"

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.
