2016 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet
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.

Notes of mineral reduction, white flowers and an interesting Chablis-like hint of iodine can be found on the pretty nose. There is excellent volume to the decidedly ripe yet rich and fresh medium-bodied flavors that possess a lovely mouth feel that also characterizes the sappy and unusually complex finish in the context of what is typical for a villages level Puligny. Excellent.
