The "Les Fremiets" has a subtle fruit and a great complexity. 3 LITRES.

In one generation, Henri Boillot has dramatically increased the quality of his Domaine wines and created a boutique négoce of the highest reputation. The wines, honed by Henri’s prodigious talent, display such a high level of detail and complexity that it is fair to say that they are among the very best representatives of Burgundy’s finest. The Volnay 1er Cru “Les Fremiets” vineyard is located at the border of Pommard opposite “Jarolières”.

The Volnay 1er Cru is very delicate, a little flowery on the nose behind subtle red fruit notes. Its complexity is in the detail. It is very approachable right now due to the vintage but also it shows a muscly side. The palate is charming and delivers a firm structure and lasting finish.

It can be paired with game meat and hard cheese. This wine can be enjoyed now by decanting it 45 minutes before serving. It would also benefit from a few years of aging and can be kept up until 2032 or beyond. 100% Pinot Noir. 3 LITRES - JÉROBOAM.

"“Les Fremiets” is in full swing with bright fruit, smoky notes and a long muscly finish. You’ll appreciate the details in this wine. The grapes usually ripen better in this vineyard close to Pommard rather than on the Meursault side, which brings an extra richness but also some chewy tannins."

At Domaine Henri Boillot, the work done in the vineyard is meticulous, following organic practices and aiming to achieve very low yields to naturally concentrate the fruit. The grapes are sorted in the vineyard and harvested by hand. Arriving at the Domaine, the grapes are sorted again and then traditional practices are used to make the wine. However, Henri and his son Guillaume make sure that the must* and then the wine is never overworked. They intervene as little as possible to preserve the essence of the terroir’s identity.

*Must is the term for freshly pressed juice that for a red wine contains the skins, seeds and stems of the fruit. For a white wine must only refers to the juice.
