Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, January 2014

    Situated in the middle of the village, this is a very easy accessible 1er Cru, with its soft harmonious fruits, rounded tannins and gently elegant pure cherry fruit flavours on the finish.

    Neal Martin, December 2013,
    Score: 90-92

    The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnet has a light bouquet with "airy" red cherry fruit and minerals that need just a touch more vigor at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with good grip and structure. Touches of iodine interlace the dark berry fruit with a sweet, sinewy finish. Fine.

  • BURG

    Burghound, Janaury 2014,
    Score: 91-93

    A discreet and elegant nose of wafting red currant and soft earth scents gives way to subtly complex and pure middle weight flavors. There is both tension and tenderness to the mouth feel of the lively and beautifully persistent finish. This understated effort is a really lovely combination of finesse and purity of expression. Drink 2019+

Producer

Domaine Louis Boillot

Louis is the seventh generation of vignerons in Burgundy from a family who is mostly known for their Côte de Beaune wines such as Pommard and Volnay however, several Côte de Nuits appellations including Gevrey Chambertin were added to the repertoire in 1978. Many of these are parcels of extremely old vines, and the wines have a natural concentration and silky persistence. Today Louis vinifies and ages his wines in Chambolle Musigny in the same cellar as his other half, Ghislaine Barthod. In fact, it has been said that his influences have helped create the celestial beauties that have risen from her vineyards. Both are ably assisted by their son, Clément. He has been instrumental in Louis Boillot’s recent purchase of vineyards in Beaujolais, Moulin à Vent, where these skilled Burgundians bring their expertise to the Gamay grape.

Region

Gevrey-Chambertin

The greatest village in terms of notable grand cru vineyards, Gevrey Chambertin has no less than 9 of them including its most famous Chambertin and Chambertin Clos de Bèze, and includes a premier cru vineyard that many people deem grand cru in quality - Clos St. Jacques. It encompasses approximately 400 hectares under vine also making it the largest top quality vineyard area in the Côte de Nuits. Gevrey-Chambertin has many followers who seek out its deeply coloured, robust and textured wines. They are often firmer than the neighbouring appellations of Chambolle Musigny and Vosne Romanée and can take several years to soften once released. Due to its size and reputation, the list of excellent producers is noteworthy and many are worth seeking out.
