Domaine Lucien Boillot Volnay 2010
The Boillot's parcel of Volnay is not far from its border with Pommard. It therefore has the benefit of both brain and brawn—a super-terroir of the Cote de Beaune.
Pierre Boillot is a rare master of both the Cotes de Beaune and the Cotes de Nuits - not only does he have the vineyards but also the savoir-faire and skill. Pierre inherited this domaine from his father Lucien, whose name it still carries. Pierre worked together with his brother Louis for years, but a few years ago they parted ways and split up the family holdings. Pierre's talent has become much more evident as he has had full control over this domaine, and in addition to retaining the original cellars in Gevrey-Chambertin, Pierre has instituted a rigorous revitalizing of the soils and vines in all of his vineyards.
