Louis Boillot - Grower Burgundy with Heart and Soul

Posted by CrushWine

Louis Boillot crafted some outstanding wines in the more difficult 2004 vintage. As he's married to Burgundy phenom Ghislaine Barthod, this is a family that lives and breathes wine. In 2005 he has outdone himself, gifted as he was by the near-perfect fruit that has already made the vintage famous.

The 2005 lineup is outstanding; certainly one of Boillot's best - the big scores are justly deserved. Allen Meadows' Burghound gives the lineup lavish praise - one quote speaks volumes: "As the scores and comments confirm, [the 2005s are] by far and away the best vintage I have ever seen at this address and I include in that assessment the wines he made at Lucien Boillot."

The only problem is Dom. Louis Boillot is small - just seven hectares - quantities are therefore very limited! Please click below to view our real-time inventory.
