Louis Boillot (France) 2018 Cote de Nuits Villages

90 Points - Parker
"From vines below the Brochon lycée comes the 2018 Côte de Nuits-Villages, another pretty wine from Boillot that bursts with aromas of cherries, cassis and rich soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, succulent and supple, its juicy core of fruit is framed by fine, powdery tannins."

"wines that Louis makes from his priceless vines are like Burgundy used to be: gentle, subtle, pure, precise and highly nuanced, their complexity and sensuality growing with age."

The Côte de Nuits-Villages from Louis is a lovely Burgundy with pronounced aromas of raspberry with vanilla and oak hints. Juicy red berries, sweet cherries lifted by a streak of acidity and finely grained tannins linger on the palate. This wine would be ideal with roast wild duck or pork loin in a creamy, mushroom sauce.

Louis Boillot (France) 2018 Gevrey Chambertin

91 Points - Tim Atkin
90 - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Gevrey Chambertin is one of the best known appellations of fine Burgundy. Its name quaintly stems from a peasant landowner, Monsieur Bertin, with a field. Over time ‘Le Champ de Bertin’ became known as Chambertin, now one of Burgundy’s most famous wines.

Louis Boillot is the grandson of Henri Boillot, a well respected producer whose estate, in his time, covered 18 appellations. Louis’ father Lucien added to it and left Louis and his brother Pierre with 7 hectares each. Louis now has an impressive set of vineyards including eight Premiers Crus, some with very old vines. This fine red comes from plots 30-85 years old, so the wine has lovely concentration.

Aromas of blood orange, The vineyard’s energy is obvious and its strong and glintingly mineral character carries the wine through beautifully.
