Variety: Pinot Beurot (Pinot Gris)
Pierre Boillot inherited the domain from his father, Lucien, for whom the domain is named, and his grandfather. Pierre and his brother worked together for some time, but after parting ways, split up the family holdings. Pierre is a rarity in Burgundy—not only does he have vineyards in both Côtés-des-Nuits and Côtés-des-Beaunes, he is a master of skill in all holdings. The more control he’s taken over the estate, the more his skill has evolved. Even though the original cellar is located in Gevrey-Chambertin, he has managed to maintain a rigorous revitalization in all the soils and vines. Every subregion of vines he represents is a classic representation of them.
Though Pierre grows the classic Burgundian varieties, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, he also grows Pinot Beurot, the regional term for Pinot Gris. These are vines over 60 years in age planted to the classic clay and limestone soils of the region.
