2011 Volnay 1er Cru Les Brouillards, Louis Boillot

Louis' plot in Les Brouillards was planted 60 years ago and these old vines show off the character of this vineyard, which touches Pommard. It borrows some of this neighbour's body and tannic structure to form a more masculine, spicy style of Volnay, with tight, grippy structure, dense mid-palate and a powerful, long finish.

2011 Volnay 1er Cru Les Brouillards, 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.
