2001 Henri Boillot Montrachet Grand Cru - 750ml
Robert Parker - 96 Points
Any lists of candidates of the wines of the vintage would have to include Henri Boillot's sumptuous 2001 Montrachet. Spiced apples, pears and white chocolate nuances can be found in its expressive aromatics. Medium-bodied, hugely ripe (yet balanced) and dense, this sublime spicy, refined, powerful wine explodes in the mouth with a myriad of spices, honeyed minerals, pears, and buttered toast. Fresh, intricate, and concentrated, it also offers an exceptionally long, flavor-imbued finish... Bravo! (4/2003)
Allen Meadows Burghound - 94 Points
As good as the '01 Corton-Charlemagne is, this is at another level altogether with an unusual combination of both more elegance and more power if not more drive and minerality. This too displays none of the now typical '01 character of slightly advanced aromas and remains pure and refined, offering a seamless delivery between nose and palate and an explosively long finish. An outstanding wine in the context of an average vintage and one that should reward another 3 to 5 years in the cellar. In a word, impressive. (3/2006)
