Guillaume and Aude Lavollée represent the fourth generation of vignerons at Génot-Boulanger. Their wines are produced exclusively from estate-owned vineyards, located along all three Burgundy côtes, from Chambolle Musigny, down to the domaine in Meursault, and on to Mercurey. With 22 hectares, Génot-Boulanger is one of only a few family-owned Burgundian domaines to produce such a diverse range of over 30 appellations, including three Grand Crus and thirteen Premier Crus. Since 2008, Guillaume and Aude have worked painstakingly to improve quality, converting to organic farming practices and experimenting with biodynamics. The domaine philosophy is “maximum work in the vineyards for minimum intervention in the cuverie,” which has translated into practices such as higher trellising for photosynthetic optimization, the use of tisanes to increase soil health, and the elimination of the use of batonnage in the winery. The wines of Génot-Boulanger are classical examples of Burgundy terroir - structured vins de garde and nonetheless inviting to enjoy when young.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Savigny Les Beaune Blanc Vieilles Vignes 2019
Guillaume and Aude Lavollée are fourth generation vignerons at Génot-Boulanger, producing wine from estate-owned vineyards. They work in organics and biodynamics to make a diverse portfolio. Here's an excellent example of the refined purity that they produce. We'll be eating this with sushi or grilled seafood with a side of fresh greens.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger 1er Cru Les Saumonts Mercurey 2020
Les Saumonts 1er Cru 2020 is an exceptional vintage for Côte Chalonnaise wines and specifically this Mercurey. The wine has plenty of structure, earth tones and maintains a bright acidity to be enjoyed now or for years to come.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Pommard Vieille Vignes 2018
“The 2018 Pommard Vieilles Vignes is a blend of Les Cras, Vignots and Chagnères and represents the domaine’s largest cuvée, each parcel vinified separately. Apparently picking dates can vary by several days here. This has a very attractive red cherry and crushed strawberry bouquet with light chalky aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with light tannins, what you might call a "transparent" Pommard, and more Beaune-like in style, leading to a fresh and quite persistent finish. Fine."— Neal Martin Vinous
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Les Nosroyes Puligny Montrachet 2020
"Les Nosroyes" is French for walnuts. Walnut trees thrive in limestone soils and are sensitive to moisture, just like vines. Genot-Boulanger's plot is 1.13 hectare in the middle of the slope, just north of the village. Nosroyes is just under the Puligny-Montrachet premier cru "Les Perrières."
The Chardonnays at Genot-Boulanger are whole-cluster pressed. Alcoholic and malolactic fermentation occurs in barrels with native yeasts and there is no batonnage. The percentage of new barrels used is around 20-30%. After 12 months of aging, the wine is racked and aged for another six months in stainless steel before being bottled.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Clos du Cromin Meursault 2020
“The 2020 Meursault Clos du Cromin comes from the domaine’s largest holding, at 1.42 hectares, and has been produced by the Domaine since the 1970s. It has an excellent, quite intense bouquet of pineapple, tangerine and nectarine aromas. The palate has a lightly spiced, ginger-tinged entry with good weight, perhaps a little short toward the finish, but I like the salinity here. Not long-term, but it will give pleasure over several years.” — Neal Martin Vinous
Domaine Genot-Boulanger 1er Cru Les Grèves Beaune 2018
Les Greves is perfectly located on the heart of the midslope of Beaune. The lieu dit's name is a reference to the gravely soil and possibly also derived from the word “graves” (serious) for the intensity of the rocks found in the soil. Genot-Boulanger's parcel was planted in parts during the 1960s and 1980. It is 1.04 hectare in size and is located mid-slope where the grade is the steepest.
The fermentations start with native yeast and are done in stainless steel tanks for 20 to 25 days. Extractions are always gentle with the number of punchdowns and pumping over adjusted to the conditions of the vintages and the terroir. The Pinot Noirs are aged for 12 months in oak barrels, with around 20% new oak before being aged for another six months in vats before bottling. The red wines are neither fined nor filtered.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Chambolle Musigny 2019
Genot-Boulanger has two parcels in the village of Chambolle-Musigny - Les Nazoires and Les Mombies. They are both on the Vougeot side, located below the village, on the bottom of the slope. In total, both parcels are 0.76 hectare.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger Chambolle Musigny 2020
Since 2008, Guillaume and Aude have worked painstakingly to improve the quality of their wines, converting to organic farming practices and experimenting with biodynamics. The domaine’s philosophy is “maximum work in the vineyards for minimum intervention in the cuverie.” This has translated to wines that are first and foremost true to their terroir.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger 1er Cru Les Vergers Chassagne Montrachet 2020
The Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers is made from a 0.7 hectare plot of Chardonnay planted in 2004. The parcel is located north of the village and is east facing. The soil is predominantly limestone but varies between more a higher concentration of marl or sand in certain spots.
Domaine Genot-Boulanger 1er Cru Folatieres Puligny Montrachet 2020
Génot-Boulanger produces classic wines from 22 hectares. Fruit is farmed organically and biodynamically, as the duo believes that these practices best showcase Burgundy’s many unique terroirs. ‘Folatieres’ is citrusy and mineral-driven, marked by flavors of lemon cream, orange rind, river stones, and hazelnuts.
Genot-Boulanger's 0.35 hectare parcel of Puligny Montrachet 1er Cru Folatieres was planted in the 1970s on a hillside of limestone and marly soils and with an ideal southeastern exposure. The family attributes the harmonious balance of the wine to the geological balance of limestone and clay in the soil. In their eyes it is one of the best 1er Cru of Puligny-Montrachet.
