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 Decanter
The fruit here is all from the En Orveaux lieu-dit, so close to Musigny and influenced by the cool winds of the Combe d’Orveaux. This is picked as much as a week after the other fruit from the Côte de Nuits, and delivers a wine of great freshness, with lovely aromas of cassis and mullberry fruit. The wine is still structured and long on the palate, but the grip seems more from the grapes than the cask.

94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2019 Echezeaux Grand Cru opens in the glass with aromas of cherries, black raspberries, sweet oil tones, licorice and orange oil. Medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, its broad, textural attack segues into an ample, lively mid-palate, concluding with a long, flavorful finish. Sourced from En Orveaux, this is only the third vintage Boillot has produced of this new cuvée
