DOMAINE ALBERT BOILLOT MIXED CASE
Raymond Boillot was the head winemaker for one of the great Burgundy Houses for his entire career. He makes a tiny amount of wine from his family vineyards in Volnay and Pommard. And this is the only source in the US
Includes 6 bottles of each:
Domaine Albert Boillot Pommard 1er Cru 'En Largilliere' 2011
Situated above the ‘Grands Epenots’, ‘En Largilliers’ is a relatively unknown premier cru. It sits between ‘Charmots’ and Pezerolles’, and just below ‘Noizons’, so it has pedigree! As its name implies, it has a high content of clay, meaning that produces deep, tight, earthy wines. Here it is showing juicy, dense blackcurrant fruit, good solid acidity and the linear tightness you would expect in its youth. Rose petals and violets, black pepper and spice. This one is worth your cellar space.
Domaine Albert Boillot Volnay 'Les Petits Poisots' 2013
A single-vineyard Volnay from the heart of the village, this ‘Petits Poisots’ shows great Pinot fruit in its youth. Classic Volnay floral notes tucked into the structure and depth 2013 acidity. This is a wine that is charming now, and which will open progressively over the next 5 years. Buy a case and drink a bottle every 6 months over 6 years and you will see a great Pinot unfold.
