Tasting Notes

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.

There is enough reduction to overshadow the underlying fruit at present so if you’re going to try a bottle before 2 to 3 years, I would advise decanting it first. Otherwise there is a beguiling sense of energy suffusing the medium-bodied flavors that possess a succulent mid-palate which contrasts somewhat with the bone-dry and youthfully austere finale. This is both classy and very stylish and a wine that should age gracefully. 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.
