This Puligny 1er Cru "Les Perrières" is focused, 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 Perrières” vineyard is located next to the infamous Clos de la Mouchère monopole, also owned by Henri Boillot. The vineyard is 49 years old of age. The bouquet opens up on wet stone flavours, it is mineral like with citrus notes, flavours of white flowers laced in white-pepper spice.

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.

"This is a tremendous wine with plenty of minerality that will please Burgundy lovers with a penchant for vibrant whites. A terrific effort from a great 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.

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