2012 Domaine Louis Boillot Pommard Les Fremiers 1er Cru
Domaine Louis Boillot is an estate in Chambolle-Musigny in the Côte de Nuits region of Burgundy. It has numerous Premier Cru vineyard holdings in both the Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune, the largest of which is situated in Gevrey-Chambertin. The vast majority of Louis Boillot wines are made from Pinot Noir, although the domaine makes a small amount of wine from Chardonnay and Gamay.
Louis' father, Lucien Boillot originally hailed from Volnay, where his father ran Domaine Henri Boillot, but settled in Gevrey-Chambertin in the 1950s and founded Domaine Lucien Boillot et Fils. The estate was divided between his sons, Louis and Pierre in 2002.
Louis released the first Domaine Louis Boillot vintage in 2003 from his cellars in Chambolle-Musigny, which he shares with partner Ghislaine Barthod – winemaker and owner of Domaine Ghislaine Barthod. The two domains are managed completely independently of one another and the wines are also vinified separately.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Pommard 1er Cru Fremiers from Louis Boillot has a touch of mint tincturing the brambly black fruit, strong tertiary notes developing in the glass and a hint of dried violet petals. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin and well-judged acidity. It does not quite deliver the length, but one can appreciate the balance and purity of the fruit here. It constitutes considerate winemaking in a difficult vintage for Pommard.

Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community.
