The producer

This estate - based in Meursault - dates back six generations to 1885 and was known previously as Domaine Jean Boillot. The Domaine owns 15ha of vineyards from Puligny-Montrachet through to Clos de Vougeot in the Cote de Nuits and include the excellent Premier Cru monopole of Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere (located within the Premier Cru Les Perrieres).

The wines from Henri Boillot are released either as Domaine Henri Boillot for wines from vineyards owned by the domaine, and Henri Boillot for those from purchased grapes. There need be little confusion as the latter are treated with the same care as the former. Henri now works with his son Guillaume who joined the domaine in 2012 and has injected even more energy into producing the finest wines possible from these excellent vineyards.

The wine

Clos de la Mouchere is the monopole of Henri Boillot. This 3.92-hectare premier cru vineyard is lying as an enclave within the Perrieres vineyard, the soil is clay and limestone, and vines are on average 82 years old. 70% of the wine is aged in 350 litre new oak barrels, and the remainder ages in used oak. The wines are pure, bold, dense, and very complex; Henri Boillot finds that Clos de la Mouchere produces a richer and more honeyed style than the rest of the Perrieres vineyard.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
