2012 Volnay Les Chevret Henri Boillot

Size Availability? price? Qty

Average critic rating : 88.5 points



A brooding and distinctly meaty nose displays plenty of earth and sauvage notes to the dark berry fruit aromas. There is good volume and phenolic maturity to the velvet-textured medium-bodied flavors that coat the palate with dry extract, all wrapped in a discreetly mineral-inflected finish that is slightly firmer than that of the Volnay villages. Tasted: Apr 15, 2014. Drink: 2019+



The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Chevrets has a tightly wound blackberry and raspberry-scented bouquet with subtle marine scents developing with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a succulent opening. Good extraction here, with a candied finish although it needs a little more tension to complete the package. Drink 2015-2025. 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.
