We are delighted to introduce you to the generous and celebrated wines of Domaine Jean-Marc Boillot. From a family with extensive vineyard land, 5th Generation Boillot, Jean-Marc, served as a winemaker to Puligny négociant Olivier Leflaive Frères in the 1980s before setting up on his own in 1989.
I have to admit that when we were first asked to taste a Belgium Chardonnay, it caused some laughter and we certainly didn’t expect that we would actively be begging for an allocation. La Falize is a true triumph. It is difficult not to draw comparisons to Burgundy, especially as a Burgundian master is involved with the project. Though we expected it to taste more like Chablis, its closest comparison is a high quality Puligny-Montrachet. We are super-excited to be the first merchant in the UK to offer this wine as the wine is fully allocated in the local market and production is naturally very small. We had to fight for our allocation and are proud to offer it today.
