Producer: Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils
Louis Boillot is the other half of Ghislaine Barthod who is one of the most highly regarded growers in Côte de Nuits in her own right. Since 2003 Louis and she have shared cellars on the edge of Chambolle-Musigny, which had to be greatly extended by excavating the yard in front of their fine looking house.

Previously Louis worked with his father Lucien and, brother, Pierre at their estate in Gevrey-Chambertin. Of his seven hectares of vines, over three are in Gevrey-Chambertin and 2.5 are in and around Volnay, which is where the Boillot family originates. The balance is in Chambolle, Nuits-St-Georges, Côte de Nuits and Fixin making for a mind boggling 16 appellations. The logistics will be interesting for Louis and Ghislaine’s son when he inherits both this and his mother’s estate and has to put it all together! Whilst the wines are made independently of each other, Ghislaine and Louis share the same team in the vineyards so much of the magic rubs off on each other, so given the small quantities of Ghislaine Barthod wines, these are the next best thing!
