We have been anticipating the arrival of this incredible value for weeks, and finally, it's due to arrive next week. When we originally tried this Bourgogne Blanc, we were surprised as we weren't expecting it to have this much richness and purity of fruit while leaving no minerality behind. It is truly a fantastic buy for White Burgundy and touches village-level quality. A bottle that will appease the old world and new world drinkers out there and is another great option for the upcoming holidays doubling as an excellent house pour.

Easily one of the best buys of the 2019 vintage for Bourgogne Blanc, we have special pricing here on some of the only bottles available in the USA. A beautiful and pure wine sourced from younger Domaine holdings, it is the perfect introduction to the style of JM Boillot. Hand-harvested grapes are pressed pneumatically before alcoholic fermentation and racking on the lees. The wine then goes through malolactic fermentation before aging in 30% new oak for 11 months. As mentioned, there is good purity here, with a juicy core of stone fruit and citrus with white flowers and a dab of minerality. The style of JM Boillot shows some opulence, and that is a beautiful thing in a Bourgogne Blanc, where they can sometimes be a bit austere and in a vintage like 2019 with a bit lower yields and higher acidity, its a perfect marriage. At the simplest, a wine that is a pleasure to drink, showing the classic aspects that we love from Burgundy at affordable pricing. A bottle to enjoy now and over the next five or so years, this is the best white Burgundy value of the 2019 vintage.
