2017 Henri Boillot Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets 75CL
Wine Rating: RP 91-93 points Drink by: N/A
The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets displays appealing aromas of smoked meats, plums, wild berries, dark chocolate and rich soil. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, broad-shouldered and velvety, with fine-boned structuring tannins cloaked in sapid and succulent fruit.
Based in Meursault, Domaine Henri Boillot is strategically placed between Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay, the two appellations that have become its specialty. The domain has set itself a firm objective: to express, through its wines, the essence of the vines and their distinctive climates.
Combining their distinct personalities, father and son work together on the domain. Both make great wines: Henri the whites, Guillaume the reds. Henri Boillot is the purposeful, passionate founder of the domain, which he steers firmly to the highest standards. His strong work ethic and dedication have resulted in an exacting, well-run domain, which he is proud to pass on to the next generation. His present focus is devoted to his precise, elegant white wines.
Having worked his way up the echelons to head of viticulture, Guillaume is now in charge of the red wines at the domain. He has subtly wrought his own style into the vinification process, revealing the very best of the terroirs, especially in Volnay. His emphasis on sensitivity, and the pleasure he takes in his work, can be felt in his wines.
