Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, August 2018

    Louis has the good fortune to own many parcels of extremely old vines around the Côte d’Or, and he makes hugely enjoyable, classical wines in his cellar in Chambolle Musigny. This Gevrey is a gem, with red fruit and floral intensity. In 2013 it has a pretty, aromatic appeal, with fine layers of fruit and spice flavours that accompany the long and concentrated finish.

    Score: 88-90

    The 2013 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes, which comes from several parcels, has a light, dark-berry, forest floor-scented bouquet that opens ajar in the glass. The palate is more promising with supple tannins, plenty of fruit and fine definition and focus on the finish. Once the aromatics open then this will be a fine village cru. Drink: 2016 - 2024

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2015,
    Score: 88-91

    (exclusively from old vines of an indeterminate age). An airy and relatively expressive nose combines notes of various red berries with Gevrey-style earth and a sauvage hint. The supple, round and utterly delicious middle weight flavors possess a subtle hint of minerality on the sappy and mouth coating finish. This is a fine Gevrey villages that should drink well young if desired. Drink 2019+

    Score: 16

    Dark fruit with a touch of bell pepper. Slips really rather elegantly onto the palate. Sweet and supple and ripping. A harmonious wine. The texture is really rather good here. It has a fluidity, and freshness woven with the richness. Score 16. A good village wine. From 2018

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.
