“Aromas of pear, green apple, white flowers, fresh pastry and toasted hazelnuts introduce the 2018 Meursault Village, a medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive wine that's chalky and structured, showing real depth and tension. As usual, it's a blend of superior lieux-dits, including Narvaux, En la Barre, Limuzin and Clos du Cromin. Drink 2022-2040.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet Village is superb, unfurling in the glass with aromas of white peach, clear honey, citrus oil and fresh pastry. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and textural, with lively acids and a long, precise finish. As I noted last year, it's derived from the superior lieux-dits of Les Houlières, La Rousselle, Les Charmes and Les Enseignères. Drink 2022-2040.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“Offering up aromas of buttered citrus fruit, Anjour pear, dried white flowers and fresh pastry, Boillot's 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes is medium to full-bodied, layered and textural, with an ample core of exuberant fruit, lively acids and an expansive finish. This is a fleshy, fruit-driven Charmes that will offer a broad drinking window. Drink 2022-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières reveals aromas of crisp green orchard fruit, peach, spring blossom, honeycomb and praline, followed by a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated palate that’s chalky and structured, built around lively acids and appreciable dry extract. Drink 2022-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“Unwinding in the glass with aromas of white flowers, waxy citrus rind, green pear, fresh mint and nutmeg, the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is medium to full-bodied, chalky and introverted, with terrific tension and structuring dry extract in this warm vintage, concluding with a long and mineral finish. Drink 2023-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Combettes offers up aromas of orange oil, waxy citrus rind, fresh pear and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping palate that's supple and succulent, underpinned by lively acids and concluding with chalky grip. As usual, this was the first parcel Boillot harvested in 2018. Drink 2023-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“Aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, blanched almonds and crushed chalk preface the 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Perrières, a medium to full- bodied, racy and incisive wine that's chalky and tensile, with lively acids and a saline finish. This has turned out very well indeed. Drink 2022-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

"Boillot's 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Pucelles reveals aromas of orange oil, white flowers and peaches, complemented by classy top notes of nutmeg and warm bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, satiny and vibrant, with quite a tensile, tight-knit core for this typically enveloping premier cru. But looking back through my notes, that often seems to be the case chez Boillot. Drink 2025-2045."- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“Boillot’s emblematic 2018 Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru Clos de la Mouchère 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. Drink 2025-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru is showing brilliantly, unwinding in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, honeycomb, white flowers, orange oil and wheat toast. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and muscular, with lively acids and an impressively structured, introverted profile for the vintage, concluding with a long, saline finish. Drink 2025-2050.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The most youthfully reserved wine in the cellar was the 2018 Corton- Charlemagne Grand Cru, a promising bottling that opens up to reveal scents of citrus zest, dried white flowers, green apple and pastry cream. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with racy acids and prodigious levels of searingly chalky dry extract that lend this wine incredible structure. Drink 2028-2048.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“Aromas of orange oil, honeycomb, ripe pears, wheat toast and paraffin wax introduce the 2018 Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet Grand Cru, a full-bodied, ample and textural wine that's fleshy and enveloping but underpinned by an impressively chalky structure that brings unusual tension and grip to this inherently generous terroir. Drink 2022-2045.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru derives from a new source, but it's as striking as ever, opening in the glass with a classy bouquet of citrus oil, white flowers, fresh pastry and blanched almonds. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, taut and chiseled, with terrific tension, lively acids and a long, chalky finish. This is worth a special effort to seek out. Drink 2028-2048.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate

“The 2018 Montrachet Grand Cru is brilliant, unfurling in the glass with scents of ripe oranges, fresh pear, peach, buttered citrus, warm pastry and anise. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, textural and enveloping, with superb depth at the core, lively acids and an ineffable sense of completeness, concluding with a long and mineral finish. Drink 2028-2055.”- William Kelley,  Wine Advocate
