2016 PULIGNY-MONTRACHET, Jean-Marc Boillot. Burgundy (Half bottle)

Bin:  899

Alcohol percentage:  13%

Area:

Puligny is of course the most renowned white wine village in Burgundy, but the style is normally finer and less ‘obvious’ than neighbouring Chassagne and Meursault. This comes from seven different plots, five of which are in the Enseignères vineyard, just below the Grands Crus Bienvenues and Bâtard.

Grape variety:

100% Chardonnay, whole bunch pressed, then fermented and matured for 11 months in barrel (50% new wood).

Producer:

Jean-Marc Boillot was born into a family of vignerons in Volnay in 1951. A family disagreement in 1984 prompted him to leave the family domaine and until 1988 he served as winemaker for the négociant Olivier Leflaive in Puligny-Montrachet. From 1985 he also began producing his own wines. The domaine’s headquarters were established at his grandfather´s house, “La Pommardière”, a dignified property next to the Château de Pommard. The most important stage in the accumulation of holdings was reached with the assertion of his right to one third of the Domaine Etienne Sauzet in Puligny-Montrachet in 1993. (Sauzet’s only daughter Colette had married Jean Boillot, making the three Boillot children Jean-Marc, Henri and Janine entitled to an equal share of the Sauzet estate). He has 11.5 hectares in total.
