Louis Bouillot was established in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1877 by Jean Bouillot, who was a wine and spirit merchant and named his maison in tribute to his father. He also named his eldest son in honour of his father, and it was Louis who was fascinated by the sparkling wines made in the Traditional Method, and made significant progress in developing the process. Louis Bouillot is now the largest producer of Crémant de Bourgogne in Burgundy and one of the oldest maisons. Today the house is owned by the Boisset family, with Crémant specialist Olivier Medigue crafting the wines. The grapes for Crémant de Bourgogne can come from the entire Burgundy region: from Chablis in the north, to Beaujolais in the south, grown on a variety of soils from chalky subsoil, limestones, marls to granites. Although Chardonnay (for freshness and elegance) and Pinot Noir (for fruit, structure and vinosity) are the premium grapes for Crémant de Bourgogne, Aligote (for vivacity) and Gamay (for tastiness) may also be included along with a few other historic varieties, but the wines must be made in the Traditional Method. Louis Bouillot's Crémants are of the highest quality. They are crafted with precision, resulting in glorious bubbles for every occasion!
