The countdown is on: 10 days until Christmas!
We have a very special treat for you this week, join us as we feature FOUR great red wines from the two brothers Boillot, Pierre & Louis, who run two separate BURGUNDY DOMAINES:
Lucien Boillot et Fils in Gevery-Chambertin and Louis Boillot et Fils in Chambolle-Musigny.
Yes, you heard right, it's THAT time of year when we bring out the BEST from Burgundy and two notable estates we visited on our trip just two months ago!
The Boillot family has a long history in Burgundy dating back to François Boillot in the early 1800s when he established his winery in the small, storied village of Volnay. Since then, the family descendants have been involved in the wine business.... from multiple Domaines in Burgundy to an early pioneer of California viticulture (Read: Paul Masson) to our very own Jeremie Copeland (great-great-great-great-grandson of François)!
As mentioned, we had the pleasure of visiting with both Pierre and Louis in October during our annual Burgundy trip. We sampled the whole line-up of new releases and are excited to bring these very limited to the tasting room this weekend!
Note for insider, Burgundy lovers: Shoot me an email if you'd like to learn more about the Premier Cru bottlings also just in - We have a few available for you passionatos out there...
So, even though the wine world oftentimes feels immense, the Boillot family's connection to not only Charlotte, but Petit Philippe makes this an extra special opportunity to sample fine Burgundies from these very special producers. I have seen first-hand how the Boillot family takes great pride in the tradition & culture of Burgundy while letting each terroir come through on all of their wines.
I welcome you to stop by for our Boillot Tasting Flight this weekend, featuring their Bourgogne Rouge, two famed villages (Chambolle-Musigny & Gevrey-Chambertin), and one Beaujolais from Clément Boillot (the next generation of Boillot winemakers).
Finally, the shop looks like the North Pole and Santa's elves are busy! Let us serve you with a unique and compelling holiday gift this season. Below find a few wine & stemware options we have curated to help with the most discerning gift recipient.

P.S. As you are enjoying the flight this weekend, ask Jeremie to share some childhood stories of running around the vineyards of Burgundy.... :0)
