About the Winemaker:

Boillot was one of the younger generation in Burgundy who was determined to improve his family's wines. In 1984, after vinifying 13 vintages at the family's domaine Henri Boillot, Jean-Marc walked out in protest, intent on producing highly concentrated, rich and ripe wines. He became the wine-maker for Olivier Leflaive for the next four years, and at the same time produced wines from 5 acres of vineyards, bottled under his own label. The wines impressed Boillot's grandfather, who bequest half his vineyard to Jean-Marc.
Boillot runs his domaine from his grandfather Henri Boillot's house and cellars in the village of Pommard. Jean-Marc's maternal grandfather was the late Etienne Sauzet, from whom he also inherited exceptional vineyards.

Ratings & Reviews

91-93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
"Pale, bright yellow. Aromas of yellow peach, fresh apricot, flowers and spices communicate a faintly exotic character. Rich, spicy and concentrated, with its stone fruit and citrus flavors accented by clove and anise notes. A fairly large-scaled premier cru but not at all heavy, thanks to its stony underpinning and adamant dryness. The chewy finish delivers lovely subtle rising length, very good grip and a hint of acacia flower." - Stephen Tanzer (Sep 2018)
