Louis BOILLOT-- 2012 Côte de Nuits Burgundies tasted from cask in November 2013 (Chambolle-Musigny)

Louis Boillot said that he began his harvesting about 20-21 September (which would have been on the Côte de Beaune, where he also has vines). Some wines finished malolactic fermentations in December 2012, others in May 2013.

Each of these wines is a great success for the level of its vineyard. (Continue reading here.)
