Domaine Henri Boillot

Graham Tucker | April 7, 2020


Our admiration for the wines of Henri Boillot are well established, and frankly, well deserved. His quick ascension from novice vigneron to the rank of master-craftsman is miraculous - a testament to Henri’s dedication to sustainability, meticulous vineyard management, and commitment to both preserving and magnifying Burgundy’s distinctive terroir in each and every bottle he produces.  

As we wrote in a recent email, Henri’s 2017 Clos de la Mouchere monopole is one of the finest offerings of Puligny Montrachet we have tasted - it combines all the most exciting and rewarding aspects of classic Burgundian Chardonnay. And although we look back with feelings of nostalgia and adoration, the 2018 has given us reason to be just as enthusiastic - the warm, dry conditions produced wines of remarkable complexity, radiance and energy. 

And better yet, the 2018 vintage is the ideal opportunity to taste through a wider selection of Henri’s wines, from the extraordinary and remarkably priced Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge, to his full-bodied yet pure and focused Meursault (comprised of some of Burgundy’s most notable Lieux-Dits including Narvaux and Tillets). 

And finally, if you’re still dreaming of revisiting the 2017 Clos de la Mouchere (I know I am!), we have a limited number of magnums available, which aren’t likely to last.
