This Meursault Chardonnay is precise with a complex bouquet.

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 Meursault is made from Boillot’s own vineyard with some additional grapes purchased from great local growers.

The nose is precise, with notes of fresh almonds, pear, acacia and some citrusy flavours. The palate is dense but driven by a succulent acidity and tension. It can be paired with roast poultry, pork, charcuterie, paté and noble seafood such as lobster and scallops. It can be cellared all up until 2022 but you can drink it now by decanting it 35 minutes before serving. 100% Chardonnay.

"This Meursault displays strong density but it is underlined by a brilliant tension and some citrusy flavours. This is a strong Meursault village that I would unreservedly recommend."

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.
