2015 Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Mouchere" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1279426 95 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Smoky broad-ranging aromas are composed primarily of various white orchard fruit, acacia blossom, citrus rind, wood and a hint of exotic tea. There is an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy character to the concentrated, mineral-driven and wonderfully complex flavors that also display a hint of mandarin orange on the strikingly long finish that is Zen-like in its harmony. In a word, fantastic. *Burghound Don't Miss Outstanding!!* Inner quote mark (6/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère, Boillot's emblematic cuvée, is one of the highlights of the range in 2015, opening in the glass with notes of struck flint, white peach, nutmeg and crushed chalk. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, powerful and intense, with great energy and tension at the core, its long finish concluding with chalky grip. More vertical than the expansive Pucelles, this is the most tensile premier cru in the cellar in 2015. (WK) Inner quote mark (4/2018)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium yellow. Knockout nose combines soft citrus and yellow stone fruits, flowers and pungent minerality. Big, smooth, mouthfilling wine, with its uncanny volume given shape and lift by pronounced minerality. Finishes extremely long and tactile but not at all dry, leaving behind a tannic impression and palate-staining apricot and yellow peach fruit. Boillot routinely chills his grapes but in 2015 most of his wines started to ferment very quickly. He added that he brought in a good percentage of his Chardonnay between August 25 and 27, just before the brutally hot weekend at the end of the month, then picked his Pinot Noir in September. Inner quote mark (9/2017)

92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2015 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère 1er Cru is showing quite noticeable reduction on the nose, although there seems to be sufficient fruit underneath. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, and quite reduced like the nose, but it conveys a sense of energy, unlike the Les Perrières from François Carillon tasted alongside. There is a pleasing saltiness and slight nuttiness on the finish that bodes well for the future. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting. (NM) Inner quote mark (11/2018)

K&L Notes

93pts Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Mid straw, quite powerful nose even if a little heavy, indeed it is toasty oak which is counting here. This is muscular, shows the clay in the soil, but it should work out well in time, as the oak integrates better (which it will)" (10/2020)
