Domaine Boisson-Vadot is a small estate that has been producing classic Meursault for about 200 years. The family holdings are under different ownership (per confusing French inheritance laws) hence the different label names (Pierre, Bernard and Anne). But everything is made at the estate, with Pierre doing much of the heavy lifting these days. Pierre is also known to compare notes and talk shop frequently with his school age buddy Raphael Coche.

There's no secret to the formula here. Just excellent vineyard management, mostly old vines and careful cellar work. The Boissons are very judicious with new oak and do little to no battonage during the long elevage. This results in clean, precise and beautifully transparent wines.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 91
"A lovely wine, the 2018 Meursault Les Grands Charrons opens in the glass with notes of pear, peach and apple blossom, framed by delicate hints of wheat toast and praline. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise, it's built around lively acids and fine structuring dry extract. This may not be the most long-lived rendition of this cuvée, but it's among the most immediately charming." -William Kelley
