France, Burgundy

Established 1885

The domain was established by Henri Boillot's grandfather at the beginning of the twentieth century. The Boillot family began to make wine in the early 1900s. My grandfather, Henri, was the first to exploit the vines that belonged to the family; then my father, Jean, went on to expand the domain.' 'I came on board in 1975, after working my way up the ladder, which is essential in a family-run domain. I became responsible for the winery as a whole. In 1995, I started my negociant business. In 2000, we built the cellars and winery in Meursault. In 2005, I suceeded in keeping the domain whole by buying out my brother and sister.' 'My son, Guillaume, joined the domain in 2008. In 2011, we extended the cellars and buildings in Meursault, and acquired some vines in Puligny-Montrachet, notably in the Batard appellation. In 2012, Guillaume became the head of viticulture, and took over the vinification of our red wines.' 'My son and I form a great duo: our shared knowledge and constructive relationship will serve as the bedrock for the longevity of our domain.'
