Louis Boillot

Louis Boillot

Louis Boillot has come to Chambolle, where his partner Ghislaine Barthod is based, from Gevrey-Chambertin, though as his range of wines indicates, he is descended from the Volnay family of Boillots. Louis uses his vast wine experience and knowledge to secure parcels of the finest quality for his négociant business, Maison Louis Boillot. Combined with this local knowledge and his talented winemaking skills, he strives to produce some of the best wines of Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny.

He was formerly associated with his brother and father at Domaine Lucien Boillot, but set up on his own from the 2003 vintage. The wines made now in Chambolle are significantly more interesting than those produced previously in Gevrey.

The vines are ploughed then run according to lutte raisonnée. The grapes are sorted in the vineyard, 100% destalked, given a cool pre-fermentation maceration, fermented then sent to barrel once the juice is cool again. 20-30% new wood is used across the whole range, with an élévage of 16-18 months before bottling without fining or filtration.
 
The domaine may suffer from the lack of geographical cohesion of the vineyard holdings, especially in contrast to Ghislaine Barthod’s concentration on Chambolle-Musigny. Their son Clément Boillot-Barthod is going to inherit quite a substantial combination one day.
