Henri Boillot has in a very short space of time build an extraordinary reputation for the sheer quality of his Burgundy wines. To call the the Henri Boillot label a mini-negoce does the wines a great disservice as, although Henri does not own the vineyards from which the grapes are sourced, he farms them as meticulously as if they were is own.

They are only ‘mini’ perhaps in the tiny levels of wine produced from each appellation. The meticulous and elegant Henri Boillot also owns and manages the Domaine founded by his grandfather. The sheer quality of these wines, including the impressive and exclusive Les Mouchères monopole, is testimony to the assiduous work he has done in both the vineyards and cellar.

Tasting Notes

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
Things get much more serious with the 2011 Meursault Les Charmes, which is a huge step up from the preceding wines in this lineup of Meursaults. It boasts stunning richness, density and minerality, all while remaining relatively light on its feet. There is weightlessness and textural polish to the Charmes that is simply remarkable. This is a gorgeous showing from Henri Boillot.

92 Points Allen Meadows
There is enough reduction present to mask the specific aromas but it seems clear that they are both ripe and complex. There is a beguiling refinement present to the solidly voluminous and concentrated medium weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the detailed, punchy, balanced and impressively lingering finish. This should amply repay extended cellaring if desired.
