Henri Boillot described 2017 as an “excellent vintage and potentially even a great one in white and a very good one in red provided that yields were kept reasonable, something not everyone respected. We chose to begin picking on the 25th of August and the fruit really could not have been much cleaner. Ripeness levels were good but not really high and thus the fruit preserved good acid levels. Stylistically, the 2017 whites make me think of 2014 with a bit more fat. This comparison is supported by the analytics as well as what we harvested in 2017 matches almost exactly the raw materials we obtained in 2014.” As the comments and ratings confirm, I was very impressed with the Boillot 2017s. - Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Allan Meadows

(85% from Meursault and Puligny Bourgogne vines and the rest from declassified St. Romain and Auxey-Duresses in equal proportions). There is a whiff of matchstick character to the pear, apple and citrus scents. The racy, intense and well-detailed middle weight flavors conclude in a youthfully austere, dry and long finish that offers notably better depth than one typically finds in the genre.
