En Primeur | Domaine Louis Boillot

The 2020 vintage represents a new era for this highly respected domaine created by Louis, when he separated from his brother Pierre back in 2003. He moved his winemaking facilities to Chambolle Musigny where his partner Ghislaine Barthod is based. 2020 is the first vintage made entirely by Ghislaine and Louis’s 26-year-old son Clement, although I suspect there was still a watchful eye from his ever-proud parents. It reflects their confidence in his ability, that they should give him so much responsibility.

    This is a fine cuvée made from the eight different parcels of Gevrey Chambertin that the domaine owns in the village. Enticing loganberry and blueberry fruits, this shows off the warmth of the summer, balancing its ripe fruit with a vibrant freshness from their early picking policy. Sweet and full of vitality, with a soothing finish.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 88-90

    The 2020 Gevrey-Chambertin Village has a straightforward bouquet with brambly red fruit with a touch of sous-bois. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly lactic entry, lower in acidity than maybe other cuvées though the fleshiness on the finish is appealing. Quite pure too. Drink 2024 - 2034

  • Burghound, January 2022, Score: 89-91

    A very fresh if somber nose combines notes of ripe red and dark currant with hints of the sauvage and forest floor. There is excellent richness to the appealingly textured medium-bodied flavors that exude a more subtle minerality on the rustic, complex and sneaky long finish. This too offers fine quality for its level. Outstanding. Drink: 2028+

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2021, Score: 89-90

    Medium deep purple, the nose is not as sensual as chez Ghislaine Barthod. But then more starts to come out. Plenty of ripe raspberry and just a slightly drier finish.

    From three separate parcels of vines, this is a tighter, firmer Chambolle. Fresh red berries, with some sweet syrup of cherry notes. Packed with bright, fresh fruit, this very pure with intense focused Pinot flavours.

  • Neal Martin, December 2021, Score: 87-90

    The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Village has a light bouquet, a little tertiary in style, perhaps just calling out for more fruité. The palate is saline on the entry, nicely structured and actually showing more potential than the aromatics thanks ot the fine precision on the finish. Drink 2024 - 2035

  • Burghound, January 2022, Score: 89-91

    Very pretty and attractively fresh aromas of cool red berries, spice and lavender give way to succulent, round and generously proportioned flavors that are perhaps somewhat less mineral-driven than they usually are, all wrapped in a lightly austere finale. Solid quality here. Outstanding. Drink: 2026+
