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.


France, Beaujolais, Moulin-a-Vent

Moulin-à-Vent is a Beaujolais Cru appellation that takes its charming name from the only windmill, or moulin-à-vent, still in existence in Beaujolais. The picturesque windmill is several hundred years old and features prominently on the labels of some producers in the appellation. Moulin-à-Vent is located in the north central region of Beaujolais, and it includes 1,605 acres of vineyards. Many Beaujolais admirers consider it the “King” of the Beaujolais Crus, and Moulin-à-Vent wines are known for their richness, fullness and their ability to age. Like nearly all of Beaujolais, the grape grown here is Gamay. About 400,000 cases are produced annually.


Red Wine, Gamay, Cru Beaujolais

The Gamay grape produces a light, versatile and food-friendly wine. It is best known for making Beaujolais Nouveau, but it is also grown in Loire and Tours. Thankfully the 14th C. Duke of Burgundy’s degree to ban the grape did not spread through all of France.
