A wine from Henri Boillot that we've only offered one or two times in the past, and with how well the 2017s are shaping up to be, it was a no-brainer. A team effort between father and son, Henri makes the white wines while Guillaume does the reds. While Boillot makes some excellent red wines, the Whites here what we come to this address. Though the Domaine offerings like Clos de la Mouchere are the favorite, the Maison wines sourced from excellent grower partnerships are just as noteworthy, and the Poruzots is one of them. A favorite vineyard in Meursault nestled in the middle of the appellation between other greats such as Perrieres and Charmes. Henri Vinifies the white wines in larger 350-liter barrels, of which 50% are new, with the remaining seeing older oak where they stay for 12 months. Henri pays a lot of attention to dissolved oxygen levels during racking and bottling and is very serious about premature oxidation, having a great track record to prove it. 2017 is a great vintage and these are some of the only bottles available of this wine in the US right now and should be showing very well.
Allen Meadows 92 points! "Here too there is a whiff of matchstick on the pink grapefruit, floral, green apple and lemon-lime nuances. The racy and impressively intense medium-bodied flavors possess excellent delineation while displaying fine power on the driving and youthfully austere finish. This is more elegant than Poruzots typically is and a wine that should age particularly well."
Wine Advocate (William Kelley) 91-93 points! "Boillot's 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Poruzots reveals attractive aromas of ripe green apple, Meyer lemon, white flowers and almond paste. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and layered and pure, with more concentration, cut and structure than the Charmes this year."
