The history of Domaine Henri Boillot dates back to the end of the 19th century. It was originally founded by Henri Boillot's grandfather, Henri Boillot Sr., who began acquiring vineyards in some of Burgundy's most prestigious appellations. The wine tradition of the domain has been passed on from generation to generation. Henri Boillot Sr. was succeeded by his son, Henri Boillot Jr., and later by Henri Boillot III. Each generation continued to expand the family's vineyard holdings and refine its winemaking techniques.

Henri Boillot owns and manages vineyards spread over approximately 19 hectares (about 47 acres) in Burgundy. Henri Boillot's portfolio typically includes wines made from Chardonnay (white) and Pinot Noir (red), the main grape varieties in Burgundy. One of the notable aspects of Henri Boillot's winemaking philosophy is his commitment to minimal intervention in the winemaking process. He believes that the grapes and the unique characteristics of each vineyard come into their own in the final wine. This approach often involves the use of natural yeasts and minimal use of new oak barrels to ensure that the wines reflect the true essence of the terroir. Henri Boillot is an advocate of sustainable and organic agricultural practices in the vineyards. He believes in minimal intervention in the winemaking process so that the grapes can fully express their origins and character. The estate is particularly highly regarded for its white wines made from Chardonnay grapes, including Premier and Grand Cru bottlings from renowned appellations such as Puligny-Montrachet, Batard-Montrachet, Le Montrachet and Meursault.

The grapes come from clay and limestone soil. The wine matures 60% in new oak barrels, the rest in single vintage barrels for 12 months. The wine has a bright yellow color with hints of green. In the nose you will find intense minerality, lime, citrus and floral aromas. In the mouth there is strong minerality and balance. The wine is energetic, long and salty undertones.
