PRODUCER

Lucien Boillot & Fils

Lucien Boillot et Fils is a 20-acre domain based in Volnay. It is run by Pierre Boillot, who is the son of Lucien Boillot. Pierre inherited old vines from his father and father and son are both part of the large and extended Boillot family of wine producers and merchants. The estate includes many Premier Cru parcels in Gevrey-Chambertin, Nuits-Saint-Georges, Pommard, Volnay and Puligny-Montrachet.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Pommard, Les Croix Noires

Pommard is a relatively large appellation of 1,655 vineyard acres just a few miles south of Beaune. Though it has no Grands Crus, Pommard’s 28 Premiers Crus are generally well regarded. The appellation produces only red wine, and wine writers often note that despite Pommard’s proximity to both Beaune and Volnay, its wines are very different from the Pinot Noirs produced in neighboring appellations. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote that “The top Pommards are full-bodied, chunky, muscular, fleshy wines that impress one more for their power and expansive, mouth filling texture than for pure finesse.” The most famous Premiers Crus are Les Epenots and Les Rugiens.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

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.
