Domaine Louis Boillot is quietly making very fine wines and deserves to be better known. He is married to Ghislaine Barthod, and they have a son called Clément. Louis started his professional life with his brother Pierre in a cellar in Gevrey, but they separated in 2003 and Louis now makes his wines in the same cellar as Ghislaine in Chambolle. His 6.8ha estate includes vines in both Nuits and Beaune, including Fixin, Gevrey, Nuits and Chambolle in the former, as well as Pommard, Volnay and Beaune in the latter. These are wines of natural, unforced elegance which are made from low yields in the vineyard and without excess extraction or new oak in the cellar, which allows the character of the vineyard to express itself.
"A restrained but attractively complex nose exhibits notes of wild red berries, earth and lovely floral hints that precede the mineral-infused, sleek and delicious flavors that deliver fine length on the mineral-inflected finish that displays less rusticity than usual. This is really very good for a Fixin villages and is recommended, especially for value." - Burghound
