Pierre Boillot is a rare master of both the Côtes de Beaune and the Côtes de Nuits– he has the vineyards and the savoir-faire and skill. Pierre inherited this domaine from his father Lucien, whose name it still carries. Pierre worked together with his brother Louis for years, but a few years ago they parted ways and split up the family holdings.  Pierre inherited very old vines from his father in the Côtes de Nuits and from his great-grandfather Henri Boillot, who was originally from Volnay, in the Côtes de Beaune. Many of his vineyards are under-appreciated treasures.  Every wine is a classic representation of its appellation– terroir-driven wines of purity and finesse.

Tasting Notes

The grapes were planted in 1958 on clay limestone soil.  No chemical fertilizers are used and the grapes are hand harvested and usually de-stemmed.  The must is cold soaked for 3 to 5 days to best extract colour and aroma from the grapes.  Fermentation is 100% natural and lasts for 18 to 21 days in enameled and stainless steel cuve. Punching down of the cap occurs twice daily.  Maximum 30% new oak barrels are used to age the wine for 16 to 18 months depending on the vintage.  Wine are bottled at the domaine with no fining or filtering.
