Domaine Henri Boillot own the huge 4 hectare Premier Cru Clos de la Mouchere in Puligny-Montrachet. It is a part of the 1er Cru Perrieres and is a monopole of the domaine.
 
Year-in, year-out it produces one of Boillot's top white wines.
 
Two weeks ago, whilst in France, I secured a parcel of the new 2016.
 
Clos de Mouchere is always a wine with masses of extract, stone fruits, citrus, minerals and a serious acid spine. Burghound called the 2014 "flat out brilliant" and the 2015 "Zen-like in its harmony. In a word, fantastic." Short of buying Chevalier-Montrachet it doesn't get much better than this!
 
I offer the wine at a very special Pre Arrival Price of $199.95. That is less than what we sold the 2012 for years ago.

I should point out that Tanzer's score of 93-95 Points is huge for a Premier Cru.

Boillot Mouchere Label
Vinous: Stephen Tanzer: 
(13.3% alcohol with 4.5 grams per liter acidity; cropped at 38 hectoliters per hectare, from vines up to 80 years of age): Bright light-medium yellow. Utterly pure scents of stone fruits, apricot, nuts and honeysuckle. Rich, deep, silky and moderately saline but also powerful and backward, displaying terrific precision and purity in the mouth. A superb, classic Clos de la Mouchère: utterly plush and seamless without being heavy or over the top. Boillot noted that he will slowly replant these very old vines in a series of tranches over the next 15 to 25 years. 93-95 Points

2016 numbers

2016 White Burgundy

The 2016 White Burgundies are starting to hit the market. The first reports are very positive.
 
Bill Nanson, The Burgundy Report: "I find the vintage style for 2016 is not unlike that of 2014, with just a little less power - if certainly not concentration. The 2016s have fine energy and classically pure fruit - it's a really engaging purity that is delivered with much more elegance than you will find in the vast majority of wines from 2014 - or of-course 2015 for that matter! But what is the style of the vintage you should rightly ask?

 

2014: Flavour delivered in waves. Fruit in the lime/citrus style, often with mineral and reductive elements. Excellent terroir definition.

 

2015: Flavour was more layered. Fruit was in an agrume style, often with reductive elements, less mineral. Good, not excellent terroir definition

 

2016: Flavour delivered in a more melting style, the flavour much more yellow/lemon/citrus styled, with very much less reduction in wines, minerality between 2014 and 2015. Excellent terroir definition."
