Tasting Notes

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 nose resembles a grand cru Chablis with its oyster shell, iodine, quinine, lemon-lime and bee’s wax-scented nose. There is outstanding volume and concentration to the overtly powerful and muscular flavors that are supported by a citrus-tinged and markedly firm acid spine that also shapes the cuts-like-a-knife finale. Cellar 2030+. 100% Pinot Noir.

"Guillaume Boillot's ideal Bonnes-Mares is one of elegance, therefore the fruits have been sourced from the Chambolle-Musingy side of this stunning Grand Cru. The delivery is absolutely stunning here, with a wine showing charme, elegance but without refuting its classy pedigree."

*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.
