With the wine he produced in 2013 from the family's monopole vineyard, Clos de la Mouchere, we see his full talents on display. The grapes are hand picked and table sorted before being gently pressed. The must is put into barrel where it undergoes a slow, cool fermentation. Before bottling, the wines spend another 18 months in wood. This stripped down approach produces wines of great depth and character. ✦ Henri Boillot Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchere 2013 BH 93 / ST 93 » $139 "Musky aromas of peach, apricot and ginger ...Supple, silky and highly concentrated, offering extremely smooth flavors of stone fruits and flowers. An outstanding 2013." (354070) discovering blagny b lagny, found in the hills between Puligny Montrachet and Meursault, is a little-known corner in the world of white Burgundy. The unique microclimate here with its variance of soil and temperatures produces wines that combine the power and richness of Meursault with the ethereal finesse of Puligny. Of all the producers who work with this exciting terroir, it's Laurent Martelet of Comtesse de Cherisey that stands out. Hand-tending vines that average 60 years old from his premier cru parcels, Laurent is able to create haunting and dramatic wines that excite the senses in their youth but also age beautifully for over a decade. ✦ Comtesse de Cherisey Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Hameau de Blagny 2011 wA 91 » $110 "...Wonderful bouquet with orange zest, lime and honeysuckle aromas...a lovely flinty aftertaste...very fine..."
