2017 Maison Henri Boillot Clos Vougeot Grand Cru

SKU #1408615 94 points Burghound

Outer quote mark (from a ~.34 ha parcel in Grand Maupertuis). A brooding deeply pitched and softly spicy nose reflects plenty of earth and sauvage characters to the dark berry aromas that are trimmed in soft wood nuances. There is excellent size, weight and power to the muscular flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the imposingly structured and youthfully austere finish that is sneaky long. This is a big 2017 that is supported by chewy but not really rustic tannins that make clear that at least some patience is advisable. Inner quote mark (4/2019)

91-93 points Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From a parcel in Grand Maupertui, the 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru reveals lovely aromas of sweet dark berries, licorice and rich soil, framed by creamy new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, firm and chewy, with lots of extract and structuring tannins, underpinned by tangy acids. It's quite promising but will need some time. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2019)

K&L Notes

94 points, Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "Dense black centre with purple rim. Muscle boy! This is serious stuff and I think it will work. It is not a question of over-ripeness but just a wall of intensely concentrated fruit with an electric tension too. This is certainly going to require a lot of time. Firm tannins and very dark fruit at the finish." (01/2019)
