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.
Volnay is one of the great communes of the Côte de Beaune, producing a well structured and concentrated mineral scented Pinot Noir. This wine is intense, with soft fruit on the palate, well structured with fine grained tannins and lingering finish.
