Based in Gevrey Chambertin, Domaine Lucien Boillot has vineyards in no less than 14 different appellations across the Cote d'Or, principally Premier Crus in the Cote de Nuits. Most recently they have bought a Premier Cru Puligny, the first vintage of which was made in 2006.
The wines are made by Lucien Boillot, somewhat of a traditionalist, who allows the terroir to express itself through minimal intervention in the cellar. New wood is kept to no more than 25-30% on Premiers and Grands Crus, and the wines undergo a long maceration post fermentation to extract the colour and tannins, meaning they are very tight for the first 4-5 years, broadening in with age.
