Boillot’s 2011 Montrachet shows the finesse of Puligny in its understated, classy personality. Sweet floral and spiced notes add complexity and depth to the nuanced fruit. In 2011, the Montrachet is all about subtlety, but there is no shortage of character. Readers who like the more refined style of Puligny will find plenty to admire. It will be interesting to see where the 2011 goes over the coming year. Anticipated maturity: 2014+. ||(Not yet released)||Henri Boillot recently finished his move to a new modern cellar in Champ Lins, one of the industrial sections of Meursault. Boillot describes his 2011s as having a bit more richness and better balance of fruit and acidity than the 2010s. Based on what I tasted, it’s hard to argue that point. Boillot seems to be one case where the 2011s have the potential to be better across the board than the 2010s. As is often the case here, the village wines are particularly strong. eRobertParker.com.August, 2012
