Don't Miss! 94pts AM Henri Boillot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2012

Posted by Veronica Cheung on

Currently one of the most-talked producers from Burgundy, Henri Boillot is well-known for creating impressive, world-class wines that are a testimony to the meticulous work they carry out throughout the wine-making process. Their whites offer excellent purity attributed to the absence of chemicals, fruitness from the ripe grapes they pick and freshness from aging in larger barrels. Despite the worldwide demand for this domaine, their prices remain highly reasonable, especially when we compare them against their counterparts in the very top-tier of white Burgundy such as Ramonet and Leflaive.
Today we are pleased to offer Henri Boillot's Corton-Charlemagne from vintage 2012 which was scored 94pts by Allen Meadows. Comparing with other producers of the same wine and vintage, Henri Boillot offers an excellent value for money in which it just scores slightly less than Coche-Dury but at a huge fraction of their price, and scored higher than Bonneau du Martray yet also lower in price -
Offering at the special price of HK$1,690 per bottle for purchase of 3 bottles or above now, this is an amazing opportunity not to pass up! -

94pts Allen Meadows “Don’t Miss!”

This is aromatically restrained to the point of being almost mute and only grudgingly displays notes of citrus peel, green apple, white flowers and wet stone. There is excellent verve and intensity to the detailed and mineral-inflected broad-shouldered flavors that culminate in a focused, complex and powerfully long finish that is markedly austere and saline. This superbly long effort will need plenty of time to unwind as it's presently very, very tight but it should handsomely repay extended cellaring.

 

94-96pts Antonio Galloni

A wine of focus and clarity, the 2012 Corton-Charlemagne is a fitting finale to this overview of 2012 whites. The flavors are bright and chiseled in this dazzling, energetic Corton, but also given an extra kick of volume by the intensity of the vintage. All the elements fall into place beautifully here. The 2012 is intense, yet retains all of its signatures. Henri Boillot, with his characteristic dry wit, adds there was no hail in this parcel in 2012, but no juice either.

Subject to final confirmation.
