Louis Boillot once of Gevrey now of Chambolle, combines his talents with wife Ghislaine Barthod. Their wine making and cellar are fastidious; the wines are pure, ethereal and grow in complexity and sensuality given cellar time. The vineyards are ploughed and farmed lutte raisonnée. At harvest there is a strict berry by berry selection and everything is de‐stemmed. Ferments commence naturally following a short cool pre‐fermentation maceration. The wines spend two winters in up to 30% new oak and are bottled without fining or filtration. All vines are 50 plus years with the splendid Cherbaudes celebrating its centenary in 2012 which was only bottled en magnum. The 2011s are fine, elegant & upright, the 2012 are deeper & richer. Louis 2013s are well worth seeking out and he has added three very serious Moulin‐à‐Vent’s to the stable.
