Boillot inherited most of the vineyards he farms today from his grandfathers, Henri Boillot and Etienne Sauzet (maternal); the pedigree at this estate is therefore unrivalled! Jean-Marc worked at Olivier Leflaive as the winemaker for five years before creating his own estate in 1985. Holding some of the best terroirs in Puligny-Montrachet, Boillot stands alongside current greats like Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey and Arnaud Ente. His Chardonnays are sensational, but unlike some of his peers still remarkably affordable.
82% down in production I am told, meaning just 1 x 350 litre barrel, a new one. Pale lemon with a light green tint. Quite a concentration on the bouquet, fruit and oak integrated. Excellent tension behind, the fruit being concentrated enough to stand up to the oak, and the finish shows significant promise. This will come out well – if you can find any! Drink from 2026-2032. Tasted: November 2022
91-93 Point Score by VINOUS Media
A focused and taut bouquet, a fine bead of acidity, light apple blossom and earthy scents emerging with time. The palate is well defined with good concentration, a fine bead of acidity, weight with a grippy finish. A lot of Puligny in your glass here!
