Domaine Henri Boillot is located in Meursault, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune. It is a family estate, which manages about 13 hectares of vineyards, planted with Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and divided into many high-quality plots, often classified as Grand Cru and Premier Cru within the municipalities of Meursault, Puligny -Montrachet, Bâtard-Montrachet, Volnay, Pommard. The origins of the Domaine date back to 1885, when the Boillot family began to devote themselves to the cultivation of vineyards. After four generations, the estate has been able to preserve an artisan face, a precious savoir-faire and a deep knowledge of the territory. The company philosophy is oriented towards the pursuit of uncompromising excellence, with the sole aim of giving voice to a terroir that has been famous for centuries for the excellence of its wines.
The Meursault site is particularly strategic. The small village, famous all over the world, is, in fact, between two other extraordinary Appellations of the Côte d'Or: Puligny-Montrachet, cradle of Chardonnay and place of production of some of the finest whites ever and Volnay, which has always been famous for the extraordinary finesse and elegance of its legendary Pinot Noir. The Domaine embodies this dual soul and produces both whites and reds of exceptional quality, perfectly representing the great tradition of Burgundy through its symbolic grapes. The Puligny-Montrachet area is characterized by the presence of brown limestone soils and limestone-clayey marl banks, which rest on substrates of limestone mother rock, ideal for Chardonnay. The soils of Volnay, on the other hand, are made up of limestone soils, which rest on shale rocks, a terroir particularly suited to Pinot Noir.
The Domaine pays particular attention to the vineyards. All processing is done by hand, from winter pruning to harvest, which takes place with a rigorous selection of the bunches, first in the vineyard and then in the cellar. Agronomic management is very respectful of the environment and sustainable low-impact agricultural practices have been adopted since the 1990s. As is customary in the area, the vines have been planted at high density and are managed with low yields per hectare, in order to obtain grapes of extraordinary aromatic concentration. The vinification takes place in a simple and traditional way, trying to intervene as little as possible to preserve the varietal richness. For the refinements, French oak barrels are used, with a percentage of new wood that varies depending on the vintage and the cuvée.
