Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 90
Wine Spectator
A dense, muscular red, featuring black cherry and spice flavors that stand up to the solid structure and grippy tannins. Fresh, finishing on the crisp side, with hints of earth and mineral. Best from 2018 through 2029. 78 cases imported.

Domaine Lucien Boillot  Winery Image

Lucien Boillot founded this Burgundian Domaine in 1978 after he and his brother divided the family's vineyards. The Domaine is unique in that Lucien moved north to the Cote de Nuits to begin purchasing vineyards there, while maintaining his parcels in the Cote de Beaune.

Since brothers Pierre and Louis took over management from their father in the early 1980's, we've seen each vintage at this great property improve. Pierre looks after the vines, and Louis looks after the administration, but a visit to their cellars makes it very clear that both brothers share a zeal for winemaking they could have only inherited from the family patriarch. A visit here is a stroll through the Cote d'Or, a taste here of Pommard, followed by Volnay, Nuits St. Georges followed by Gevrey. At Domaine Boillot one begins to understand the subtle distinction between Beaune and, say, Fixin. Their range of Premier Cru sites is second to none.

This small village is home to the Grands Crus in the farthest northerly stretches of Côte de Nuits and is famous for some of the deepest and firmest Burgundian Pinot noir.

Gevrey boasts nine Grands Crus, the best of which are arguably Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. As with all of the fragmented vineyards of Burgundy, it isn’t easy to differentiate between the two, which are situated adjacent with Clos de Bèze slightly further up the hill than Le Chambertin. Clos de Bèze has a shallower soil and if you’re really counting, may produce wines less intense but more likely to charm. Some compare Le Chambertin in both power and plentitude only to the prized Romanée-Conti Grand Cru farther south in Vosne-Romanée.

Two other Grands Crus vineyards, Mazis-Chambertin (also written Mazy-) and Latricières-Chambertin command almost as much regard as Le Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The upper part of Mazy, called Les Mazis Haut is the best and Latricières-Chambertin offers an abundance of juicy fruit and a silky texture in the warmer vintages.

Other Grands Crus are Ruchottes-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères-Chambertin, Griotte-Chambertin and Chapelle-Chambertin.

The most respected Pinot noir wines from Gevrey-Chambertin are robust and powerful but at the same time, velvety and expressive: black fruit, black liquorice and chocolate come into play. After some time in the bottle, the wines are harmonious with bright and sometimes candied fruit, and aromas of musk, truffle and forest floor. These have staying power.
