Henri Boillot Corton Charlemagne - Two Spectacular Vintages

We are delighted to offer two brilliant vintages of Henri Boillot’s Corton Charlemagne, the 2019 and 2020. With each of these achieving 96 points from Allen Meadows and falling into his ‘Don’t Miss’ category, they are among the elite of each respective vintage.

Henri Boillot makes sublime white Burgundy. These are pure and intense wines that pulse with energy, while still having plenty of flesh and fruit. They are consistently among the region’s finest, and the Corton Charlemagne is one of the finest in the Boillot portfolio.

Each of these is brilliant. With 96 points, the 2016 matches Meadows’ score for the Corton Charlemagne from Domaine de la Romanee-Conti and yet is a fraction of the price. The 2020 is also outstanding, and Meadows’ 96-point score makes it the highest-scoring 2020 Corton Charlemagne that he has tasted so far.

2019 Henri Boillot, Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru
(3*75cl OC) @ £825 per case in bond 
 (1*75cl OWC) @ £275 per bottle in bond

96 points Allen Meadows ‘Don’t Miss’
Here too the nose is quasi-Chablis like with similar nuances of iodine, mineral reduction and oyster shell along with a variety of citrus influences. The sleek and almost painfully intense broad-shouldered flavors flash plenty of minerality on the dense, muscular and bone-dry finale that leaves zero doubt that this will need extended patience if you’re to see it at its peak. This youthfully austere effort has length to burn and it’s not every day that you encounter a Corton-Charlemagne that can go head to head with a great Chevalier but this one can. (2021)
2020 Henri Boillot, Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru
(3*75cl OWC) @ £820 per case in bond

96 points Allen Meadows ‘Don’t Miss’
Subtle notes of mineral reduction and wood toast can be found on the aromas of green apple, clove and white flowers. The wonderfully intense, focused and muscular large-scaled flavors brim with both dry extract and an almost aggressively minerality on the markedly dry but not really austere finale. Like the Chevalier and Montrachet, this beauty of a Corton-Charlemagne is presently very tightly wound and is going to need extended patience to arrive at its peak. This too should be gorgeous in time. (2022) Drink 2032+
