2017 Henri Boillot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Clos de la Mouchere" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1386208 94-96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From an enclave within the premier cru Perrières, Boillot's 2017 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère is utterly superb this year, wafting from the glass with aromas of lemon oil, mandarin orange, beeswax, iodine and subtle smoky reduction. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, satiny and layered, with striking volume and depth at the core, balanced by incisive acids that animate the long, mineral finish. Guillaume Boillot speculates that this monopole's comparative variety of mesoclimates and soil types lends the resulting wine greater complexity than would be the case with a small cuvée. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

94-96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright yellow. Lemon drop and oil, peach, hazelnut and flowers on the subtly complex nose. Tactile and brisk on entry, then thick and energetic in the middle palate, conveying a distinct impression of sweetness countered by pure saline minerality. The wine's peachy fruit hints at almost honeyed ripeness without losing its verve. Finishes with outstanding mounting length. This has the palate presence and depth of a grand cru. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A touch of mineral reduction can be found on the markedly floral-inflected nose of white peach, spice and discreet wood nuances. There is first-rate volume to the caressing yet powerful flavors that possess excellent mid-palate density before concluding in a highly energetic, complex and beautifully well-balanced finale. This isn't quite as structured as the Pucelles but it is still sufficiently prominent to make evident that here too patience will be rewarded. Inner quote mark (6/2019)

K&L Notes

96 points from Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy: "Clean pure bright pale lemon colour. The nose stands up straight, this is magisterial. The nose is chiselled and fine, not reductive. A wealth of white fruit races across the palate, the fleshiest of all the Boillot Puligny 1ers crus but without losing the distinction or the energy. A perfect complete wine with marvellous length and follow through." (1/2019)
