RATINGS

90-92The Wine Advocate

...aromas of cassis, wild blueberries and dried flowers that mingle with savory bass notes of licorice and espresso. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with wonderful concentration and depth at the core, tangy acids and a long, mineral finish.

90-92Vinous / IWC

...compact bouquet, with clay-like scents permeating the black fruit...palate is medium-bodied with sappy black fruit, pure and well balanced. A tang of spice develops toward the grippy finish.

PRODUCER

Louis Boillot & Fils

Domaine Louis Boillot is based in Chambolle-Musigny. Though he is part of the large and extended Boillot family of winemakers and wine merchants, Louis started his domaine only in the 1990s and built a cave in Chambolle-Musigny. Louis’ brother is Pierre Boillot and the two of them inherited land from their father, Lucien Boillot. The domain has Premier Cru parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Pommard, Volnay, Chambolle-Musigny and Nuits St.-Georges.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin

Côte de Nuits is the northern part of the Côte d’Or and it includes the most famous vineyards and wine communes in the world. There are more Grand Cru appellations in the Côte de Nuits than anywhere else in Burgundy. Of the fourteen communes, or villages in the Côte de Nuits, six produce Grand Cru wines. They are Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey-St.-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Flagey-Échezeaux and Vosne-Romanee. Some of the vineyards within the Côte de Nuits are tiny, which adds to their prestige. The fabled Grand Cru vineyard La Romanee is barely two square acres. Altogether there are twenty-four Grand Cru vineyards. The region takes its name from the village of Nuits-Saint-Georges. Côtes de Nuits produces mostly reds from Pinot Noir, and the wines have been in demand for centuries. During the 18th century King Louis XIV’s physician recommended that for his health the king only drink wines from Nuits-Saint-Georges. Like most of Burgundy, the soils of the Côte de Nuit can vary greatly from one vineyard to another, though most are a base soil of limestone mixed with clay, gravel and sand.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
