DOMAINE ALBERT BOILLOT VOLNAY 'PETITS POISOTS' 6 PACK
Raymond Boillot of the Domaine Albert Boillot in Volnay is a winemaker of some 40 harvests, and has true 'pedigree', having been the cellar master for the famous Beaune négociant Reine Pédauque in his day job.
This, coincidentally, gives him an oblique connection with our Domaine de Cromey, because the previous owners of Cromey were the owners of Reine Pedauque, and so Raymond knew of the property well before we did!.
That said, we have known Raymond for a lot longer than we have been at Cromey, and we know his wines going back to the early 'paper-copy' newsletter days of Elden Selections.
Raymond Boillot was the head winemaker for one of the great Burgundy Houses for his entire career. He makes a tiny amount of wine from his family vineyards in Volnay and Pommard. And this is the only source in the US.
This wonderful selection includes 3 bottles of each 2018 and 2019 Vintages:
A single-vineyard Volnay from the heart of the village, this ‘Petits Poisots’ shows great Pinot fruit in its youth. Classic Volnay floral notes tucked into the structure and depth 2013 acidity. This is a wine that is charming now, and which will open progressively over the next 5 years. Buy a case and drink a bottle every 6 months over 6 years and you will see a great Pinot unfold.
