The 2018 Bourgogne Aligote from Anne Boisson is showing nicely, mingling aromas of apples and pears with hints of white flowers. Medium-bodied, bright and fleshy, it’s lively and charming.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
Domaine Boisson-Vadot is one of the fine, outstanding small producers in the village of Meursault that are not particularly well known beyond their native France, but which produce stellar examples of Meursault. The estate is currently run by the father and son team of Bernard and Pierre Boisson, who turn out between three and four thousand cases of wine per year. Pierre is now in his mid-twenties and slowly beginning to take over more and more of the decision making in the cellars for the family estate, in addition to making a few wines on his own as well from vineyard holdings on his maternal grandmother’s side of the family. Pierre Boisson is good friends with Raphael Coche, son of Jean-François Coche of Domaine Coche-Dury, and the two spend many hours together discussing winemaking and viticultural philosophies.
The wines of Domaine Boisson-Vadot have always been excellent, with a classic, soil-driven and racy style not encumbered by excessive new oak or extensive battonage, but the wines have taken a notable step up in quality now that father and son Boisson are working side by side. The Boisson family have been vignerons in Meursault for more than two centuries, and the wines today are as fine as they have ever been in the long and illustrious family history.
Note: the wines of Boisson-Vadot, Pierre Boisson and Anne Boisson are all produced collaboratively at the family’s cellars in Meursault. The hierarchy starts with the domaine’s excellent Bourgogne Blanc, from vines in the village of Meursault, which could easily be mistaken for a Meursault with its broad texture and hints of lime, nuts and honey
