Here we are, with the posthumous portrait of two Burgundy wines from Henri Boillot in his 2005 vintage. A red, Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets, and a white, Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchere. Both of them showing a modern style but keeping the region’s identity.
The neighbour towns of Puligny and Chassagne share the most famous white wine vineyard in the world, Le Montrachet. White burgundy just at its best. Model of elegance, concentration, and complexity. Puligny wines are said to mirror this style, each one with its own differences and personality. There are many great crus in the village, both grand and premier cru. Among the later, Les Pucelles has a really good reputation. It is located northeast from Le Montrachet, side by side with Batard-Montrachet, another famous grand cru. A total of 5.13ha where Domaine Leflaive is the main owner. Its orientation is southwest. The soil is similar to that of the grand crus, mainly limestone, with some clay (more than in Le Montrachet or Batard), good drainage capabilities and good inclination.
