2011 Maison Henri Boillot Meursault
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.

90 Points Allen Meadows
A relatively restrained, even cool nose offers up notes of mineral reduction, citrus, acacia blossom and hazelnut. The mouth feel of the refined medium-bodied flavors is an interesting combination of succulence and finesse wrapped in a long, dry and balanced finish. Note however that there is plenty of gas present so I would strongly advise decanting this if you’re tempted to try a bottle soon.
