2019 Pierre Boisson Bourgogne Blanc
Previously released under the Domaine Boisson-Vadot label, wines from their holdings are now made and presented under the labels of Bernard Boisson's children; his son Pierre Boisson and daughter Anne Boisson. While the two children vinify separately, they share the same cellar in Meursault, and produce wines that are more similar than they are different. Vine age is impressive, with many plots over 60 years old, and no herbicides or fertilisers used. Wines are fermented wild in barrel, thereafter raised in oak for 19-22 months, with no more than 30% new oak used predominantly for the top cuvées.
Pierre Boisson sources the fruit from four lieu-dits in Meursault; Les Belle Cotes, Les Vaux, Les Gelerands, and Les Coutures. The wines sees 10% new oak, and is bottled unfiltered after 18 months in barrel.
Offering up aromas of green apple, citrus oil, white flowers and a subtle top note of petrol, Pierre Boisson's 2019 Bourgogne Blanc is medium to full-bodied, satiny and precise, with lively acids and a chalky, delicately oak-inflected finish. Drink 2021 - 2026.
