Henri Boillot extracts individual personality fom his wines, Pucelles is all about, freshness with marine and white flowers, an intoxicating nose. This is as close to Grand Cru White Burgundy as it gets without quite the price tag. The wines are undeniably enjoyable in their youth with crystalline focus. Bottle age rounds the edges and elongates the flavours, patience pays dividends, but sometimes you just cannot wait!
The Domaine Henri Boillot vineyard in Burgundy is split in half between red and white wine production. No chemicals are used and heavy pruning is done in the Spring to keep the yield low; grapes are then harvested late to achieve maximum maturity. Originally known as Domaine Jean Boillot and not to be confused with Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot, Robert Parker said these wines are "excellent representatives of the fundamental character one has come to expect from these vineyards."
Some of the finest wines in Burgundy are being made at this Domaine, non more impressive than the monopole vineyard Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de La Mouchere. We are very excited to represent these wines in the UK
An expressive nose flirts with reduction yet not so much as to impair the attractiveness of the intensely floral nose where additional breadth is present in the form of orange peel, spice, pear and honeysuckle nuances. The beautifully stylish, intense and fleshy middle weight flavors possess good verve and outstanding depth on the impressively rich and persistent finish. This is generous yet quite classy and should also amply repay up to a decade of cellaring.
