En Primeur | Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot 2019

Bearing the name of founder Jean-Marc, this domaine is now managed by his daughter Lydie and husband François. This outstanding estate owes its origin to an inheritance from Jean-Marc’s grandfather Etienne Sauzet. Jean-Marc learnt his trade as the Sauzet winemaker before setting up his own 11 hectare domaine with some of the finest vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. More recently they have purchased a further 10 hectares in the Mâconnais. Their vinification process is designed to express the purity of Puligny fruit: a short cold settling of 24 hours follows pressing, followed by 11 months élevage with a weekly bâtonnage before bottling.

According to Lydie, the Boillot winemaking policy of minimal intervention was crucial to their success in 2019. They harvested on 7th September and, whilst the summer was warm, the vines had not suffered from an excess of heat. The grapes required gentle handling in order to best reflect their terroir origins. Halfway through my tasting, Lydie’s now-retired father, Jean-Marc joined us. Having spent a lifetime in the vineyards, he believes that the sun now has greater intensity than when he first started as a boy. “Temperatures may be the same but even in April, when I walk in the vines, I get a tan. That never used to happen.”

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    Super-precise and bursting with crunchy acidity and stony freshness, this is a marvellously energetic wine with a perfect nose and pretensions to a creamy palate. A great wine for short to medium term love and wonderfully blessed with Boillot’s stylish touch, this is a lip-smacking wine and it is stunning value, too.

    Bordering Meursault Perrières, Boillot’s Champ Canet is a beauty in 2019. Pure yet plump, with refined quince and medlar fruits. The vineyard’s clay soil gives depth, structure and punch. Very long, and the irresistible toffee and caramelised fruit flavours make this an absolute joy.

    Power-packed and forceful, this is a muscular, well-built, no-nonsense wine with great depth and a square-jawed appeal. In need of a couple of years to unravel, this is a terrific wine with such a strong character it really impresses.

    Attractive pale colour with a light green tint. There is a wealth of fruit here, a little sweetness too, a touch of peach, but not excessive, the Champ-Canet has just about kept its integrity. Fine long finish with perhaps a touch of heat? Always very millerand grapes here, I am told, which may be why this wine is flirting with the over exotic. 3 stars

    This is a lovely floral style of Puligny with hints of orange peel and fresh chamomile. Harmonious and graceful, there is a flowing freshness. Easy and absolutely charming.

    Relaxed, classy and layered, this is a beautiful and sensual Chardonnay with a forward feel, but it lacks nothing in terms of class and poise. Great freshness lurks beneath a silky-smooth chassis and the length, for a village wine, is sublime.

    Pale in colour, lighter than the Meursault and more floral in style. The Puligny-Montrachet has a steely intensity through the middle, but this is also laden with a huge volume of fruit, really attractive and with excellent persistence. This wine has managed to keep a very fresh feel. 4 stars

    This higher altitude Premier Cru in the hamlet of Blagny excelled in 2019. Enticing honeysuckle and quince aromas. This focuses on energetic purity with a grapefruit-like freshness on the mid-palate and a fine velvety finish. Balanced and appealing.

    Sharply acidic and almost painfully jagged and mineral on the finish, you could be forgiven for thinking that this was a Grand Cru Chablis such is the drama on the finish. Of course, this is just a heightened expression on La Garenne and so caveat emptor because if this is not your shape of white then move on. If, however, this piercing freshness and stony purity work for you, then ship it in.

    Fresh pale colour, a lively nose with a touch of grapefruit. A slightly sunnier fruit starts to emerge with time in the glass. Offering a warm rich mouthful of fruit behind, this Garenne has maintained balance, with good acidity. 4 stars

    Renowned for having drive and intensity, this 2019 is classic Referts. The vibrant lemon and lime attack gives way to some rich caramelised peach and buttery notes. This warming ripeness gives way to a tight, grippy mineral finish. A wine of immense class and complexity.

    Pale with a little greener edge. The nose is quite reserved, though a delicious volume of fruit emerges on the palate, ripe, yellow plums, a little saline touch to finish, and very persistent. 4 stars
