Boillot’s emblematic 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchere has turned out brilliantly, wafting from the glass with aromas of pear, hazelnut, dried white flowers, citrus oil, blanched almonds and smoke. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with terrific concentration, searing levels of extract and a long, mineral finish.

Wow, ‘I remember when this cost just… ’, and when it was a regular on British Airways! Bottled. Actually, this doesn’t seem quite as tense and smouldering as when it was a J-M Boillot wine. But perhaps my memory is playing tricks on me.
