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.
91-93 Point Score by VINOUS Media
A little more backward on the nose compared to the Champ Canet, though it gradually opens with aeration, light sea spray scents complementing the malic fruit. The palate is well balanced with a lightly-spiced entry, quite waxy in texture with orange rind and quince towards the vibrant and pretty finish. Very fine.
