2016 Domaine Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Mouchère"

SKU #1361730 96 points Burghound

Outer quote mark A highly restrained nose requires considerable swirling to liberate the beautifully well-layered aromas of mineral reduction, white rose, spice, citrus and a wisp of exotic tea. Like the Pucelles there is excellent richness and detail and much more minerality-suffusing the almost painfully intense finale that is breathtaking in its persistence. This is a gem of a Puligny 1er and in 2016 is a lovely blend of power and finesse. In sum, this is a knockout. *Don't miss! Outstanding* Inner quote mark (6/2018)

95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Superb floral lift to the aromas of stone and citrus fruits, minerals and smoke. Compellingly silky, even thick, on entry, but with terrific inner-mouth mineral lift shaping and intensifying the wine's lemon and floral flavors. Dense with dry extract, this outstanding 2016 premier cru leaves the salivary glands quivering on the very long, slow-building finish. Ninety percent of these vines are 70 years old, according to Boillot. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2018)

94 points Jasper Morris

Outer quote mark Pale lemon colour. There is impressive weight of fruit on the nose, more white than yellow. A little bit of reduction helps the thread here and there is impressive density, a white fruit core and excellent length very fine finish. Inner quote mark (5/2019)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Saline, refreshing and citric with a sharper, more vivid palate than their village Puligny, but not much more complexity. Better length and pith, however, so this is promising for the future. 17.5+/20 points (RH) Inner quote mark (1/2018)
