From the hill of Corton running south to the town of Beaune and Santenay at it`s tip, the Côte de Beaune represents the southern half of the vineyards of Côte d`Or. It is famous for its mix of Grand and Premier Cru white and red wines including Montrachet, Corton, Puligny, Pommard and Volnay.
The Boillot estate originated in Volnay in the 1850s and was relocated in the village of Gevrey Chambertin some 100 years later. A vineyard holding across 14 appellations has been pieced together over this time. Now managed by Louis and Pierre Boillot and Pierre is today a winemaker on top of his form, making velvety soft red Burgundy with impeccable structure.
From his winery, hidden in the town of Gevrey, Pierre Boillot creates deliciously soft and velvety Gevrey which is intense and flattering, perfumed with cherry and redcurrant. This is a complex Burgundy, powerful with fine tannins and ripe, silky fruit lingering on the finish.
An intense perfumed Gevrey with cherry and redcurrant aromas, powerful with fine tannins and ripe, silky fruit lingering on the finish.
A good accompaniment to chicken casseroles, roast guinea fowl or duck, and pork dishes also with mature soft cheeses.
