Jean-Marc Boillot comes with an impressive CV and equally impressive pedigree. From the winemaker of the great Olivier Leflaive wines to inheriting much of the vineyard of the old Domaine Sauzet from his grandfather Étienne Sauzet, which are some of the best vineyards of Puligny. Exquisite finesse and elegance are at the heart of his 2013 Puligny-Montrachet. There is plenty of richness in the glass, a touch spicy with cold stone / mineralité clearly present. Expressive but with fine tension on the finish. Absolutely delicious and drinking well now.
Domaine Méo Camuzet Hautes Côte de Nuits Blanc St Philibert 2011 Few of us can afford the great wines of Meo-Camuzet who, and deservedly so, is one of the undisputed superstars of Burgundy. The perfectly drinking 2011 Hautes Côte de Nuits Blanc St Philibert is simply a delight – Beautifully ripe, flowers, white stone fruits and pears are all layered into the silky, polished finish. Drink now.
This sensational St Aubin is beautifully balanced, delivering a poised and rounded palate with crunchy fruit and lively core acidity. It is clean with the pure fruit character of lemon and stone fruit shining through and on the finish a hint of spice. This is a serious wine with no shortage of minerality and will evolve and improve for a few years to come.
A perfect introduction to the delights and complexity of real white Burgundy, this is mainly Côte d'Or fruit, together with some from the Maconnais. Fresh with lovely weight, delicate creaminess and judicious oak, making this a beautifully balanced dry white wine.
This wine’s balance and sense of harmony are impossible to miss. The palate is tense and vibrant with heightened energy and precision: the tannins super-fine and capture a striking marriage of power and sensuality. Truly gorgeous.
