Henri Boillot creates impressive, world-class wines that remain fairly-priced against rivals in the very top-tier of white Burgundy. Allen Meadows, the top critic specializes in Burgundy, had praised Henri Boillot, saying “Henri Boillot continues to make stunning wines from his négociant operation and he has arguably become the finest pure négoce specializing in white burgundy today”, which is a tremendous compliment given the quality of their competition in the region such as Domaine de la Romanee Conti.
If we compare this side-by-side with other leading producers of, Henri Boillot awarded with the highest score Le Montrachet of the vintage with a massive 97pts which outscored the others such as Domaine de la Romanee Conti, Ramonet and Comte Lafon, at a fraction of price.
From an unopened wooden case which was purchased since release and stored in a professional warehouse ever since, we are delighted to offer this fascinating and readily drinking Le Montrachet at nearly half of the market price^.

97pts Allen Meadows “Don’t Miss!”
Like the Bâtard, this is incredibly backward and even more primary and if it doesn't sound like a contradiction in terms, this is subtly kaleidoscopic in its sheer aromatic breadth with a superb range of aromas and spice elements complementing the chewy, powerful and dense full-bodied flavors that have more dry extract than any wine in the Boillot line-up. This is a wonderfully muscular yet focused effort and one that is literally painful on the hugely long finish that like the Chevalier, doesn't seem to have an end. While this is bigger and richer than the Chevalier, it's not quite as refined. Fans of power, weight and size will likely prefer the Montrachet whereas fans of finesse and elegance the Chevalier. A high-class choice!
Subject to final confirmation. ETA 4-6 weeks.
