Batard Montrachet Henri Boillot 2016
Henri represents the fifth winemaking generation of the Boillot family and has, in recent years, greatly enhanced the reputation of their wines. Making wines both from his own vineyards and from purchased fruit, he has a portfolio that showcases some of the greatest vineyards in Burgundy. The 2016 Bâtard-Montrachet leaps from the glass offering up deliciously intense scents of peach, tangerine, lemon verbena, griddled nuts and toast. On the palate it has wonderful amplitude, concentration of fruit and lustrous texture, underpinned by a spine of racy acidity and speckled with mineral undertones. A particularly full-bodied and powerful release that will need a little more cellaring.
