Established in 1885 by Henri Boillot’s grandfather, the Meursault based domaine is strategically placed to produce some extraordinary Burgundian wines. On either side of the domaine are Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay, the two appellations that have become its speciality. Run today by the father-son duo of Henri and Guillaume, the domaine profits from both of their expertise. Henri’s passion drives the domaine forwards in order to reach ever higher standards. He specialises in the production of their white wines from Puligny-Montrachet. After joining the family domaine in 2008, Guillaume worked his way up the ladder and became head of viticulture in 2012. He is now in charge of the red wine production from Volnay and has introduced his own subtlety to the vinification process, resulting in a less extracted style with incredibly high quality.

Puligny-Montrachet has brown limestone or limestone based soils, alternating with clay, whilst Volnay is mainly limestone with schist. The domaine strives to express these primary differences in the wines they produce, along with the authenticity of the terroir. As early as the 1990s, the domaine started taking a non-interventionist approach in the vineyards and are now focussing on ways which they can help the vineyards withstand dramatic changes in climate. Included in the domaine’s 14 hectares of vines is the Clos de la Mouchere – a Premier Cru monopole in Puligny-Montrachet that has become the flagship bottling for Domaine Henri Boillot.
