This Puligny 1er Cru "Les Combettes" is floral, fresh and complex.

In his generation, Henri Boillot has dramatically increased the quality of his Domaine wines and created a boutique négoce listed among the very best of the region. Today, the wines, created by Henri’s 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.

The premier cru “Les Combettes” vineyard is located at the border with Meursault, next to the premier cru "Les Charmes". The vineyard is 0.33 hectares owned by Henri Boillot. The bouquet opens up on floral, struck match, subtle exotic fruits, spices and acacia. 

The palate is vibrant, towering through to a persistent finish. It is both elegant and delicate. It can be paired with lobster, foie gras, roast poultry and charcuterie. It will benefit from one to two years of cellaring and can be kept up until 2027+. 100% Chardonnay.

"The Combettes is undeniably one of the top vineyards in Puligny-Montrachet, located in a rather warmer area, pronouncing a hence of roundness balanced out by tremendous minerality and freshness, simply stunning!"

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.

** Terroir is the specific combination of location, vineyard, climate and people that create a wine. Accordingly, different terroirs produce different wines.
