Domaine Louis Boillot Moulin-a-Vent Les Brussellions 2020

$40.00

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.”

This one today hasn’t made it yet to the Wine Advocate where we’ll see if they can match their two consecutive years of 94-point scores, but it already has a great 93-point write-up from John Gillman at the View From the Cellar. He said this:

With all of Monsieur Boillot’s 2020 Moulin-à-Vent bottlings, he chose to include about twenty percent stems in the fermentations. However, he hand-selected the stems to use at his sorting table and then added them back into the cuvees prior to the start of fermentation, so that he could be certain to only use perfectly ripe stems. His 2020 Brussellions is another superb wine in the making, delivering an aromatic constellation of cassis, sweet cranberry, pigeon, fresh thyme, stony soil tones and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full and tangy, with lovely mineral drive and early complexity, ripe, moderate tannins and a long, vibrant and beautifully poised finish. 2025-2060.
