Fill out your info and we will notify you when the 2017 Volnay Domaine Lucien Boillot et Fils is back in stock or when a new vintage becomes available.


Pierre Boillot inherited very old vines from his father in the Côte de Nuits and from his great-grandfather Henri, originally from Volnay, in the Côte de Beaune. Accordingly, tasting with the gracious and soft-spoken Pierre and his wife, Sophie, is an educational and often transcendental experience spanning the appellations of Volnay, Pommard, Gevrey, and Nuits-Saint-Georges.
          This is traditionalist red Burgundy at its best, and 2017 is one for the ages: perfectly ripe, elegant Pinot Noir with balance, purity, and great terroir transparency. Best of all, yields finally returned to normal after a string of challenging vintages, filling up the cellars for the first time in years. Pierre’s sixty-year-old vines in Volnay produce a wine of depth and finesse, laced with the ethereal perfume of flowers and sour cherry. Delightful today with some aeration, this bottle will not disappoint those who choose to cellar it.

About Burgundy

map of Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

I want you to realize once and for all: Even the winemaker does not know what aging is going to do to a new vintage; Robert Parker does not know; I do not know. We all make educated (hopefully) guesses about what the future will bring, but guesses they are. And one of the pleasures of a wine cellar is the opportunity it provides for you to witness the evolution of your various selections. Living wines have ups and downs just as people do, periods of glory and dog days, too. If wine did not remind me of real life, I would not care about it so much.
