Domaine Henri Boillot

About the Producer

Region: Meursault

Domaine Henri Boillot consists of some 15 hectares mostly in Puligny and Meursault for the whites, and in Savigny-lès-Beaunes, Beaune and Volnay for the reds. A dynamic father and son duo, Henri takes care of the whites and Guillaume looks after the viticulture as well as the reds. Highly meticulous and detailed in their whole approach, they follow sustainable methods in the vineyards and pick on the early side to retain as much freshness as possible. In the cellar, white berries are whole bunch pressed before being fermented in large barrels (350 litres). Guillaume’s influence on the reds has brought added refinement over the years. The berries are crushed gently followed by a cold soak and a long fermentation. Henri Boillot’s reputation is testament to their incredible hard work both in the vineyards and the cellar. Harvest started on 5th September in 2019 yielding grapes with incredible concentration and freshness. A combination of low yields and a no expenses spared approach, has produced spectacular results. Starting with a sensational Bourgogne Chardonnay, this was an impressive tasting with wonderful energy and minerality across all the wines. The only drawback is a 50% reduction in volume due to tiny grapes being picked.

Tasting Notes

By James Snoxell, Fine Wine Buyer

2019 Bourgogne Blanc
£115 per 6 bottles in bond

An exceptionally intense and vibrant Bourgogne Blanc with energetic grapefruit and bright citrus fruit notes on the palate and a vibrant mineral freshness (wow!). Made from grapes grown in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Saint-Romain and Auxey-Duresses, this wine punches well above its weight. Drink from 2021.

2019 Meursault
£230 per 6 bottles in bond

An intensely refreshing Meursault with aromas of lemons and lime and just a hint of flower blossom. An intense palate, bursting with pithy citrus fruits, is underlined by a salty mineral freshness which makes the mouth water. Incredibly pure and precise, this wine is full of energy and depth. Drink from 2022.

2019 Meursault 1er Cru Clos Richemont
£475 per 6 bottles in bond

A monopole vineyard recently purchased by Henri Boillot, this is the first vintage they have made. Immediately very complex and energetic on the nose, with aromatic citrus and smoky mineral notes, the palate is fresh and delicately balanced with bright lemon and stone fruits. Very classy indeed and a wine to follow. Drink from 2024.

2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère
£550 per 6 bottles in bond

Delicately balanced and elegant with a subtle bouquet of lemons and stone fruits, this wine opens in the glass to reveal notes of white peach and flower blossom. Showing lovely intensity and a flowing mineral energy which leads to a long finish, this is a wine full of promise. An enclosure within Les Perrières Premier Cru, ‘Mouche’ being an old Burgundian word for ‘bee, Mouchère is wholly-owned by the domaine. Drink from 2024.

2019 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles
£595 per 6 bottles in bond

An exceptional site, this is more delicate than the Genevrières and dances out of the glass. Scents of flower blossom lead to an extremely elegant and focused palate with an incredibly refreshing mineral quality which runs right through to the finish. Precise and pure and bursting with energy, this is a very complex wine which will benefit from some more time in bottle. Drink from 2024.

2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Genevrières
£595 per 6 bottles in bond

An incredibly complex Genevrières, the 2019 has an expansive bouquet of flower blossom, lemons and fresh apples. It shows lovely direction and freshness on the palate with bright citrus fruits, an impressive mineral energy and wonderful depth. Drink from 2024.

2019 Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru
£925 per 6 bottles in bond

Several small plots are blended to create a wine of immense power and precision with enormous complexity. Sweet citrus and white stone fruit aromas mingle with exotic scents of smoke and spice. On the palate, enveloping grapefruit flavours and a tangy bitter lemon character are set against an elegant mineral backbone. Drink from 2025.
