Louis Boillot

Louis Boillot is descended from the large family of Boillot based in Volnay. He used to be involved with his father and his brother in the Domaine Lucien Boillot but decided to go it alone in 2003. He used to make his wines in Gevrey; however, for almost two decades he has made his wine in the cellar of his wife, Ghislaine Barthod in Chambolle-Musigny and there has been a stunning rise in quality in his wines. Louis has some wonderful parcels of old vines, especially in Gevrey: Here his village appellation wines are over 50 years old, which make climats such as his Evocelles almost premier cru quality. Louis’ Champonnet is considered one of the best premier crus and is a rare opportunity to taste this just-over three-hectare site. His Cherbaudes, made from 90+ year-old vines, is a real treat.

As a result of his heritage, Louis makes Burgundy in many different climats on the Côte d’Or. Today, both he and Ghislaine are more than happy to let their extremely talented son, Clément, make their wines and continue their winemaking philosophy: minimum treatments in the vineyards; minimum intervention in the cellar with a short cool pre-fermentation maceration; aging in oak for 15-18 months with maximum 30% new oak; bottling without fining or filtration. Louis makes wines that are balanced, gently made with great purity and precision. They are also so utterly drinkable that we are delighted to have an allocation of some of his favourite wines.
