Having inherited a part of his father’s estate in Gevrey-Chambertin Louis Boillot decided to move the production to Chambolle-Musigny where he now shares a newly built cellar with his partner, also a talented winemaker Ghislaine Barthod. Louis oversees Ghislaine’s vineyards, otherwise the two Domaines are managed and vinified separately, though, probably, not without consultations. Favouring gentle extraction and a minimum of new oak Boillot is an advocate of classical Burgundy, gentle, subtle and sensual, the complexity of his wines only growing with age. At present he owns 7 hectares of vineyards combining as many as 16 appellations in Gevrey-Chambertin, Volnay, Pommard, Chambolle-Musigny, Nuits-St-Georges and Fixin.
