Guillaume Boillot is particularly pleased with the 2019s – with their perfect balance and, for the whites, a real floral character that runs through the range.
The domaine’s Premier Cru Clos de la Mouchère was – as ever – a highlight of our tasting. This four-hectare monopole sits within the prestigious Perrières, producing a particularly honeyed expression of the site.
The old vines (averaging 80 years in age) bring an added concentration to the wine, further emphasised by the power of the 2019 vintage.
Unfortunately, volumes are down by 50% at Boillot in 2019 – but this is an intense, rounded and incredibly complete wine. Citrus and minerality form the backbone of the wine, while it’s the energy at its core that is so astounding – and so telling of its future. Henri Boillot’s Clos de la Mouchère is the domaine’s monopole Puligny-Montrachet Premier Cru, within Perrières. In 2019, it is astouding.

“There’s a real roundness to Clos de la Mouchère in 2019; it’s soft, intense and long, yet with plenty of acidity to back up this generosity. Vibrant citrus fruit and minerality drive the wine, but there’s a suppleness that surrounds a core of real energy. With air, notes of white nectarine, acacia honey and freshly cut hay emerge – adding richness and weight. Particularly concentrated and fine.”
