History

This is one of those rare finds, never before available in the UK until 2011, Boisson Vadot have long been content to sell to a mailing list of private customers in France believing that they should let “people come to them” rather than chasing export business around the world. We think this has the potential to be one of the great domains in Burgundy. The Boisson family Domaine in Meursault is a total of 8.5 hectares and they have been leading wine makers in the region for over two centuries. Certain parcels of the wine estate These are divided up between Bernard Boisson and his two children, Pierre and Anne. Although the wines are labelled individually as Boisson-Vadot, Pierre Boisson and Anne Boisson, they make the wines altogether in excactly the same way. The parcels of vines are primarily situated in Meursault with smaller holdings in Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie, Pommard and Beaune. Although not certified organic the Domaine never use any fertiliser or pesticides and all the vines are ploughed to control weeds and to air the soil.

Production

Vinification is traditional and the harvest is done by hand. The grapes are sorted in the vines and back at the Domaine before going into vats. The wine is aged in oak barrels between 15 and 18 months, sometimes more if the vintage demands it. New oak is used very sparingly, though there are no hard & fast rules as to percentages of new or old barrels, the vintage decides. What is clear, thought though, is that in no way do the Domaines want the oak to mask the character of the wine. Bottling is done at the Domaine without any filtration. The wines, even at Bourgogne level, are incredibly intense, taut and powerful, they are definitely the more mineral side of the Meursault spectrum. The flinty, powerful Meursault's rank among the very top wines of the commune.
