2013 Maison Henri Boillot Bourgogne Blanc
His hand-harvested Maison Henri Boillot Bourgogne Blanc is derived from excellent, village-level parcels from predominantly Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet as well as village-level fruit from Saint-Romain, Auxey-Duresses and Pernand-Vergelesses. A total overachiever of a Bourgogne Blanc thanks to the varied, resplendent terroir, the wine is gently crushed by pneumatic press, and the must is rapidly cooled to incredibly low temperatures, ensuring pristine fruit and riveting freshness.
This 2013 Bourgogne Blanc displays a pale golden yellow core with green reflections on the rim. The intense, mineral-driven nose charms with aromatics of classic young Burgundy with aromas of freshly picked yellow apple, Bosc pear, lemon peel, hazelnut, acacia and hawthorn flowers, lime blossoms, a hint of lees, wet limestone and a touch of oyster shells. The medium-bodied palate generously fills out once it's open and at the proper temperature and is balanced by crisp freshness, perfect tension and distinct minerality. Flavors of yellow apple, Bosc pear, and lemon zest are tightly wrapped inside layered of white flowers, crushed hazelnut, lees and focused minerality. This is a show-stopping example of entry-level white Burgundy that drinks like many producers’ top wines at less than half the price.
