2011 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet ‘Clos de la Mouchere’ 1er Cru

$340.00

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.

Description

94 Points Allen Meadows
A very mild hint of reduction reduces the expressiveness of the otherwise cool and pure floral, citrus rind, stone and soft spice notes. There is plenty of volume to the rich, intense and mouth coating middle weight flavors that exude a fine minerality on the gorgeously complex, strikingly well-delineated and bone dry finish. This saline-infused and clearly built-to-age effort is spectacular.

95 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2011 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere is one of the most understated of the Puligny premier crus. At first rather closed, the Clos de la Mouchere blossoms as soon as intense, saline notes hit the mid-palate. Here, too, there is considerable energy in the glass, but in a much less obvious style than the Pucelles.
