Louis Boillot in concert with his wife Ghislaine Barthod and their son Clément Boillot-Barthod manage a fabulous array of old-vine vineyards in both the Cotes de Nuits and Cotes de Beaune. Whilst this Burgundian ‘red-royalty’ family hold no Grand Cru vineyards they turn out some of the most beautiful red Burgundy along the Cote d’Or.

Other Reviews....
A very spicy and ultra-fresh nose is comprised by the essence of red currant, pomegranate and a touch of green tea. There is excellent punch and once again very good detail to the focused medium-bodied flavors that possess solid complexity and persistence though the finish, in much the same fashion as the Evocelles, is somewhat skinny and lean. This too may well flesh out with a few years of bottle age and my predicted range offers the benefit of the doubt as this is usually a very reliable wine. Drink 2028+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Champonnet has turned out brilliantly, wafting from the glass with a beautiful bouquet of cherries, cassis, wild berries, rose petals and sweet soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, elegant and enveloping, with a fleshy core of fruit, powdery tannins and succulent acids.

William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Feb 2020)

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Champonnets 1er Cru is bestowed with darker fruit than the Evocelles at the moment, offering well-defined blackberry and light briary aromas. There is a pleasing minerally undercurrent at play here. The palate is medium-bodied with quite firm tannins lending fine backbone, but this does not possess the same degree of precision and charm as the Evocelles toward the finish. Let’s see if it develops by the time of bottling. Drink 2023-2037.
