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.

The Boisson family own a 1ha parcel within this lieu-dit which was planted in 1988. Following fermentation, the wine spends 18 months in oak, with around 20% being new.

Other Reviews....
The 2019 Meursault Les Grands Charrons has turned out very well, exhibiting aromas of pear, green apple, white flowers, citrus oil, toasted almonds and praline. Medium to full-bodied, layered and chiseled, it's taut and concentrated, with tangy acids and a penetrating finish. Drink 2023 - 2037.
