Average critic rating : 91.0 points



This is a notable step up in both aromatic elegance and complexity with its layered nose of plum, anise, violet and spice nuances. There is a wonderfully intense and refined mouth feel to the broad-shouldered and punchy medium weight flavors that are built on a base of firm minerality. I very much like the depth and length here and while there is still enough unabsorbed wood to notice on the beautifully persistent finish it should be completely integrated with a few years of bottle age. Good stuff. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2022+



The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Les Rugiens has a more sophisticated bouquet than the two Volnays that are tasted: better delineation and focus here. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. There is lushness here, but good structure and a pleasing focused saline finish that is long and satisfying. This is a very fine Pommard for the vintage. Wine Advocate.February, 2014

Since taking full control of the family estate, Domaine Jean Boillot, in 2005, winemaker Henri Boillot has become renowned for the sheer quality of his wines, made using vines which are more than 60 years old. He renamed the estate Domaine Henri Boillot soon after taking it over to eliminate confusion with his brother’s estate, Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot.Boillot’s negociant arm, Maison Henri Boillot, is a benchmark producer of French estate wines which are outstanding examples of some of the Cote d-Or's most prestigious crus. From village-style Meursaults to Le Montrachet, Boillot’s wines have an intense minerality and are structured, linear and ageworthy. Although Henri does not own the vineyards from which his grapes are sourced, he farms them as meticulously as his own and uses the same methods to make the wines.
