Domaine Génot-Boulanger


Attending Winemaker: Guillaume Lavollée

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.
