2017 domaine henri boillot, volnay premier cru, les chevrets

Why We're Buying

Don't let the rose petal and cherry aromas fool you. There's much more to Domaine Henri Boillot En Chevret than scent. This full-bodied pinot noir also has a seductive mouthfeel, juicy acids, and wonderful length. After trying the 2018 vintage, wine critic William Kelley called it a "quintessentially elegant Volnay."

Wafting from the glass with aromas of small red berries, raw cocoa and rose petal, the 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Chevrets is medium to full-bodied, melting and satiny, with a gourmand core of fleshy and succulent tannins that largely conceals its structuring tannins, balanced by an animating line of acidity.

The 2017 Volnay Les Chevrets 1er Cru, not the most commonly seen Premier Cru (Nicolas Rossignol also bottles this), has an attractive bouquet with violet petals littered over bright black cherry fruit. The palate is well balanced with grippy tannin, the 30% new oak nicely integrated here, sorbet-fresh with orange zest, tangy marmalade and Indian spices surfacing towards the vibrant finish. Very fine.

An elegant, airy and cool nose is also attractively perfumed and is composed of essence of red cherry, lavender and soft spice aromas. The elegant, even lilting middle weight flavors evidence notably more minerality on the wonderfully textured, refined and well-balanced finale. This is a lovely Chevrets fashioned in a style that should permit reasonably early accessibility.
