Domaine Henri Boillot

Domaine Henri Boillot

  • France Burgundy
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 hard work in the vineyards and cellar. Harvest started on 5th September in 2019 yielding grapes with incredible concentration and acidity. A combination of small production and a no expenses spared approach, has produced spectacular results. Starting with a sensational Bourgogne Chardonnay, this was an impressive tasting (one of the best of the week?) with wonderful energy and minerality in the wines. The only drawback is a 50% reduction in volume due to tiny grapes being picked.
