Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, November 2021

    Sadly, not a single bottle being of this cuvée is being made in 2021 following the spring frost, so we can be thankful that the 2020 is a stunning cuvée from this high-altitude vineyard by the hamlet of Blagny. A mix of lemon sherbet, hazelnuts, and caramel crunch. Multifaceted in nature, with a menacingly deep structure, it has great purity of flavours and the spicey richness at the end sits perfectly alongside a feeling of freshly squeezed lemon and zest. A class act.

    Cask sample. Creamy, almost buttery, nose. Lots of tension on the palate though, and more zesty acidity than some of the 2020s from this producer. Bodes well for the future. Some may object to the whisper of oak in evidence but surely that will be suppressed by complex fruit as it ages. Drink 2025 – 2034

    Pale lemon colour. Very interesting nose with plenty of energy here, offering some underlying opulence and a little hint of menthol, fills out the mid palate very well, and with some generosity at the finish.

Producer

Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot

Jean-Marc and his children Lydie and Benjamin consistently make some of the most appealing and forward drinking wines from their significant holdings across Burgundy. Their range of Puligny Montrachet premiers crus shows impressive individual distinction. Jean-Marc’s family has a long and distinguished history in Burgundy. His grandfather was Etienne Sauzet, from whom he inherited vineyards in the early 1990s. He spent his early career working for the family domaine, Henri Boillot, before making the wine at Domaine Olivier Leflaive. In the 1980s he began making wine from his own vineyards which were significantly expanded with his Sauzet inheritance of an outstanding array of Puligny premier cru sites. The family have exported their uncomplicated but precise winemaking philosophy further south to the Côte Chalonnaise, and more recently, Mâcon.

Region

Puligny-Montrachet

Puligny Montrachet is known as the most delicate of the white wine appellations south of Beaune.Its wines tend to be linear and mineral offering delicate floral and orchard fruit aromatics. Its village and premier cru vineyard area total slightly over 200 hectares but almost half of them are premier cru making them one of the highest proportions of quality vineyards in the Côte de Beaune. Several grand cru vineyards are present, the most notable being Le Montrachet and Bâtard Montrachetwhich it shares with neighbouring Chassagne, but it does have the extraordinary Chevalier Montrachet and the tiny Bienvenues Bâtard Montrachet all to itself. There are a handful of red wines grown, but they tend to be quite light and need to be drunk in their youth.
