    Winemaker Notes

    Every wine by Domaine Lucien Boillot is a classic representation of its appellation–from Volnay and Pommard to Gevrey and Nuits-Saint-Georges, as Pierre’s work in the cellars is geared towards transparent, terroir-driven wines of purity and finesse. He is not, however, against a rich, plump, lusciousness in his reds.

    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.

    On the hillsides between Pommard and Meursault, Volnay is one of two villages in the Côte de Beaune that is recognized for its extraordinary Pinot noir. Pommard is the other; the rest of the villages are most known for some of the most exceptional Chardonnay in the world. While Volnay Pinot noir tends to be light in color and more delicate than that of Pommard, they typically stand on par with each other in regards to quality and demand.

    Volnay can’t claim any Grands Crus vineyards but more than half of it has achieved Premier Cru status. Volnay Premiers Crus vineyards stretch across the entire village from northeast to southwest, abutting and actually falling “into” Meursault. Where they merge is a vineyard called Les Santenots. Pinot noir grows in this Meursault Premier Cru but since that village is most associated with stellar whites, the Pinot noir from Les Santenots, takes the name Volnay Santenots. Immediately above it are Volnay’s other prized Premier Cru, Le Cailleret, Champans, Clos des Chênes and Le Cailleret.

    Volnay Pinot noir are earthy with red or blue fruit. Aromas such as smoke, herbs, forest, cocoa and spice are common and on the palate they are gorgeous and concentrated with finesse but won’t truly charm you without some age.
