DOMAINE ALBERT BOILLOT 2022 MIXED CASE
AVAILABLE TO SHIP IN FEBRUARY 2024
Raymond Boillot of the Domaine Albert Boillot in Volnay is a winemaker of some 40 harvests, and has 'pedigree' as an oenologist, having been the cellar master for the Reine Pedauque for most of his career.
Situated in the communes of Volnay and Pommard, the Domaine Albert Boillot produces appellations Bourgogne white and red, Volnay and a Pommard 1er Cru. These vineyards total just under 10 acres, and produce on average 20,000 bottles a year. Raymond Boillot makes wine in the traditional manner, but with the benefits of modern oenological work.
Mixed case includes 6 RED bottles of each with GROUND SHIPPING INCLUDED:
Volnay 'Les Petits Poisots' 2022
A single-vineyard Volnay from the heart of the village, this ‘Petits Poisots’ shows great Pinot fruit in its youth. Delicate Volnay fruit, floral (the typical violet notes of a Volnay), supple but dense, mouth-wateringly bright, with a long, lingering fruit-driven finish. This is a wine that is charming now, and which will open progressively over the next 5 years. Buy a case and drink a bottle every 6 months over 6 years and you will see a great Pinot unfold.
Pommard 1er Cru 'En Largilliere' 2022 'En Largilliere'
Situated above the ‘Grands Epenots’, ‘En Largilliers’ is a relatively unknown premier cru. It sits between ‘Charmots’ and 'Pezerolles’, and just below ‘Noizons’, so it has pedigree! As its name implies, it has a high content of clay, meaning that produces deep, tight, earthy wines. Here it is showing juicy, dense blackcurrant fruit, good solid acidity and the linear tightness you would expect in its youth. Rose petals and violets, black pepper and spice. This one is worth your cellar space.
