Henri Boillot Bienvenues Batard Montrachet 2006, 3L (BH95, WA95-96) from The BPW - Merchants of rare and fine wines.

Henri Boillot Bienvenues Batard Montrachet

3L

Vintage: 2006
Region: France--Burgundy--White
Appellation: Puligny Montrachet, Cote de Beaune
Condition: crk, sbsl

BH95, WA95-96
Rated 95-96 points by the Robert Parker`s Wine Advocate: `The Boillot 2006 Bienvenue-Batard-Montrachet is smells intriguingly of violets, white truffle, white peach, chalk dust, and sea breeze, reminding me a bit of a great Mesnil Champagne. Glossy in texture, with deep nut oil richness, and a sweeter more obvious suggestion of ripe pit fruits and citrus than the Criots, this displays amazing complexity of mineral, animal, fungal elements that carry into a riveting finish. I suspect this would be worth holding for a decade or more, but given its youthful qualities and given the vicissitudes of aging white Burgundy, anyone lucky (and wealthy) enough to latch on a bottle or two would be foolish to push his or her luck and risk missing out on an unforgettable experience!`Henri Boillot-s ambitious and burgeoning negociant arm is made up in large part of many small bottling lots, representing remarkably many of the Cote d-Or-s most prestigious crus. -Precision and minerality- are words he offers to explain his intentions even in a vintage as ripe as 2006, and for the most part he walks the accompanying walk, with wines (largely assembled in tank) that showed more generously and expressively than did Boillot-s estate wines on the same day.`--Tasting Note by David Schildknecht--
