2015 Maison Henri Boillot Bourgogne Blanc

SKU #1301923 Allen Meadows - Burghound

 *Outstanding Top Value* (50% from Meursault vines and the rest from declassified St. Romain and Auxey-Duresses in equal proportions) A fresh and ripe nose of pear and orange peel exhibits touches of the exotic. There is excellent underlying tension to the punchy flavors that possess unusually good volume while delivering equally fine length. This is impressive for its level and highly recommended.  (6/2017)

This Bourgogne Blanc smells just like Meursault! Golden apples on the nose with generous oak, but, not too much oak. Rich, layered fruit on the palate with a lingering, crisp and mineral laden finish. One of the best whites that we tasted on the 27th of February.

Maison Henri Bouillot Bourgogne Blanc offers an amazingly fresh and surprisingly complex expression. Drinking well-above the price point, this wine has a super fragrant, pretty nose, and shows off plenty of layered fruit notes of lemon, pear and apple. With mouth-quenching acidity, this is my go-to white this summer. Super recommended!

Wow! This is a fantastic Bourgogne Blanc. I have always loved the wines by Henri Boillot but I was not expecting the 2015 Bourgogne Blanc to be as good as it is. At only $24.99 this may be the best value we currently have in the Burgundy section. Loaded with stone and citrus fruits, zesty minerality and good acidity this mouth-watering white is delicious. Boillot specializes in Puligny Montrachet and Meursault and you can see the pedigree in this Bourgogne Blanc that drinks more like a wine from Meursault than an entry-level white.
Top Value! Drink from 2017 to 2022

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Chardonnay

- It's hard to believe that up until about 30 years ago, this extremely popular varietal hid behind the veil of geographical names like Chablis and Puligny-Montrachet. Now grown all over the world and bottled by its varietal name, Chardonnay has achieved a level of branding unlike any other wine. Surprisingly, though, what you get when you buy Chardonnay can differ greatly from country to country and even within one country, depending on the climate where it's grown and how it is vinified and aged. From fresh, crisp and minerally with apple and lemon notes to rich and buttery with tropical fruit overtones, Chardonnay runs the gamut. In France's Burgundy, Chardonnay is the source of the prized wines of Chablis, Corton-Charlemagne, Mâcon, Meursault and Montrachet. It also the foundation of exceptional Champagne, where it is blended with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier or vinified on its own into Blanc de Blancs. It is also extremely popular in California, and is gaining popularity in Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Spain and South Africa.
Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.
Sub-Region:

Burgundy

- The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Côte d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Côte de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Côte de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Côte Chalonnaise and the Mâconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Côte d'Or. Also include by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
