2009 Gevrey-Chambertin, Louis Boillot

"Not surprisingly, this is much more deeply pitched with a cool and extremely fresh nose of crushed red berries and plum nuanced with pungent earth hints that are also reflected by the rich, voluminous and round flavors that possess a velvety texture on the explosively long finish. The tannins are unusually fine for the appellation and I like the underlying minerality." 89-91 Burghound

2009 Gevrey-Chambertin, Louis Boillot
Domaine Louis Boillot

Louis Boillot previously worked at family domaine Lucien Boillot in Gevrey, though the family was initially based in Volnay, hence they also have wines from this commune. Louis himself relocated to Chambolle in 2003 where his wife, Ghislaine Barthod, is based, and they share the same vineyard team. From several notable appellations, Louis crafts wines that are united in their commitment to terroir. He also has an impressive concern further south in Moulin-à-Vent, making Pinot-like Beaujolais.
