The "Les Chevrets" Pinot Noir is seductive on the nose with a firm structure.

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 Chevrets” vineyard is located on the border of Meursault opposite the “Clos des Santenots”. The vines are, on average, 25 years old.

The Volnay 1er Cru has a strong flavored nose with notes of earth, dark berry, smoke and licorice. The fruit is bright and very expressive. This is a deep Pinot Noir, perfectly reflecting its fine terroir. The palate is seductive and fruity with a firm mineral structure and long finish. It can be paired with roast chicken, game and hard cheese. It can be enjoyed now by decanting it 40 minutes before serving or it can be cellared up until 2023 and beyond. 100% Pinot Noir.

"This was one of the last vintages made by Henri and largely assisted by his son Guillaume. It is vibrant and shows a great complexity built on fine tannins. You’ll love the intensity of this wine."

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.
