Domaine Henri Boillot er eneejer af den enestående mark Clos Mouchere, hvis 58-årige vinstokke yder et uhyre begrænset antal flasker af sagnomspunden kvalitet. En samlerobjekt med få sidestykker, meget lagringsværdig.
The 2012 Puligny- Montrachet Clos de la Mouchere is one of the brighter, more focused Pulignys in the cellar. Lemon, flowers, white stone fruits and pears all meld together in a beautiful, focused wine endowed with gorgeous energy. I very much like the brilliance of the Clos de la Mouchère in this vintage. This is one of the highlights among Henri Boillot's 2012 whites. 2014+ .
(from 60+ year old vines and the vineyard is a whopping 4 ha monopole within Perrières). The nose is markedly reduced and I would strongly suggest decanting this if you're tempted to try a bottle young. The intensely mineral-driven middle weight plus flavors possess outstanding mid-palate concentration with an abundance of palate coating dry extract, all wrapped in a wonderfully vibrant and highly persistent finish. I very much like the balance as this is a big yet stylish effort that should amply repay medium-term cellaring. 2019+
Crisp,reductive, stylish and lean. Very fashionable: Chardonnay on stilettos. Elegant, refined, satisfying.
Tasted blind at the Burgundy 2012 tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère has a captivating, mineral-driven, sea- spray-tinged bouquet that is complex and compelling. The palate is very well balanced with finely tuned acidity, harmonious and poised, though a Puligny-Montrachet that is only just beginning to show what it can do. Cellar this for four to six years and see what comes out the other side, as it could merit an even higher evaluation then.
Outstanding lift to the aromas of lime and crushed stone. Silky, smooth and magically light on its feet, displaying outstanding energy and cut to its lemon, lime and spicy oak flavors. This tastes like it's from another vintage than the Combettes. The bracing, extremely long finish hints at huge dry extract without coming across as phenolic or dry. The crop level here was just 25 hectoliters per hectare, according to Boillot.
The 2012 Puligny-Montrachet Clos de la Mouchère 1er Cru is a great wine from Boillot, even holding its own against the 2013 Montrachet from Ramonet. Fresh and mineral-driven on the nose, it offers tempting glimpses of slate and sliced pear all very well defined. There is satisfying salinity on the entry of the palate, just a trace of sour lemon with fine delineation on the feisty finish. You could broach this now, though personally I would wait another couple of years. Tasted at 21 Boulevard restaurant in Beaune.
