Maison Henri Bolliot is a benchmark producer of estate and négociant wines that are outstanding examples of some of Burgundy’s most renowned growing areas. From his village Meursaults to his Le Montrachet, Boillot’s wines are intense, structured, linear and ageworthy.

"Good dark red. Black cherry, licorice and herbs on the ripe nose; reminded me a bit of cabernet. Fat and sweet but energetic too, with lovely roundness and balance to the flavors of dark cherry, currant and spices. Finishes with very sweet tannins and noteworthy persistence. A strong village wine in the making."

"The 2012 Volnay is a villages in name only, as it is a blend of fruit from four 1r Cru sites that are too small to be vinified on their own. Small red berries, raspberries, mint, cinnamon and licorice are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass. Aromatic, nuanced and refined, the 2012 is classic Volnay in its flavor profile and essentially medium-bodied structure. Today, the 2012 is firing on all cylinders. What a gorgeous wine this is."
