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

93 Points Allen Meadows
A distinctly restrained nose requires aggressive swirling to coax the lovely aromas of citrus peel, floral, wet stone and white orchard fruit aromas. The intensity of the chiseled flavors is borderline painful and this intensity continues onto the youthfully austere, stony and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is a really lovely Perrières though note that it’s one of the relatively few examples of the vintage that will definitely require at least some patience.
