Despite having only launched his domaine in 2002, Louis Boillot came armed with some of the oldest and best situated vineyards in Burgundy—thanks to the prime real-estate secured by four generations of Boillots n Volnay and Gevrey Chambertin. Louis’ domaine has quietly become one of the most admired small estates in the Côte d’Or but his latest project in Moulin-à-Vent has everyone taking notice including Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate who called out the wineries’, “superb examples of Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie.”
Read their review below for this great wine:
“…medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with the broadest shoulders and most mid-palate volume of the range. This is a serious but beautifully balanced wine that’s built for the long haul.”

94 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
One of the more perfumed, elegant wines in this year’s collection is the 2019 Moulin-à-Vent Les Brussellions, a medium to full-bodied, ample and layered red evocative of plums, red berries, rose petals and spices. Deep and concentrated, it’s structured around ultra-refined tannins.
One of a growing number of Côte d’Or producers to acquire land in the Beaujolais, Louis Boillot—whose wines I taste every year in the cellars in Chambolle-Musigny that he shares with his spouse, Ghislaine Barthod—is producing superb examples of Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie. Today, it’s their son Clément who has taken over the reins. Classically vinified and given an unusually long élevage by the standards of the region, these are serious, elegantly muscular cru Beaujolais built to age with grace, and they come warmly recommended. The 2019 vintage was another comparatively early harvest at this address, and this choice has been vindicated by a beautifully balanced portfolio that’s one of the most elegant that this new domaine has produced to date.
