This 2014 Cru Beaujolais, grown on gama is fresh and light, with tart cherries, a touch of spice, and lightly dried herbs. Beautifully balanced, this wine is perfect for entertaining and celebrations -- it will stand up to a host of foods, from creamy baked brie to roast duck and everything in between.

Louis Boillot et Fils

Louis’ domaine has quietly become one of the most admired small estates in the Côte d’Or. The Louis Boillot estate works an incredible assortment of over 20 terroirs throughout the Cote d’Or and Beaujolais, and features many of the oldest vines in either region. The turning point came in the mid-2000s when he and his partner—the supremely talented Ghislaine Barthod—built a cave together in Chambolle-Musigny. The vineyard management was also combined, with Louis responsible for not only his own vines but those of Ghislaine as well. Winemaking at Boillot remains utterly classic, with long, gentle fermentations and macerations followed by a patient élevage with only limited usage of new wood. Winemaking here is meticulous and gentle; no chemical fertilizers, herbicides, or pesticides are used at all, and vines are pruned for balance. With Louis’ son, Clément, joining the business in 2013, the duo started buying old vineyards in Beaujolais, bringing their formidable long-term vision to top sites in Moulin-à-Vent and Fleurie.
