Nose: notes of raspberry and fresh cherries, with a hint of vanilla and undergrowth. Palate: boasting great finesse, elegance, and complex aromas, this is a fleshy and luscious wine. A Pinot crafted for pleasure yet boasting big league complexity.
Maxime Dubuet-Boillot, child of the 1989 vintage and grandson of a farmer from Corberon and a vigneron from Volnay, first turned his back on his family vineyards before finally returning to them for good. Maxime’s career began not in wine but auto racing, working as a mechanic for The 24 Hours of Le Mans. He pursued that passion for 10 years before heeding the call of his winegrowing roots. Leaving Le Mans for la Bourgogne, he went back to school and obtained degrees in viticulture, oenology and sales from the Lycée Viticole de Beaune. He did internships with the Boillot family and at the Domaine de Nuits Saint Georges, before taking over the family estate his grandfather Pierre Boillot founded. Today, Maxime cultivates five hectares of pristine vineyards including plots in numerous prestigious Premiers Crus, while striving to produce precise and harmonious cuvées that reflect his deep respect for the environment and his family traditions.
A nose that reflects all the character and elegance of Volnay, with notes of dried strawberry, peony, morello cherry and a hint of mocha... Palate: beautiful concentration, tannic structure, and length with a seemingly endless succession of aromas. Fine ageing potential.
A deep, complex nose with notes of small black berries, amarena cherry, and an elegant touch of wood. The palate is a pure, sapid expression of Pinot Noir, coupled with great length and all the elegance and delicacy of Volnay.
