    Domaine Boyer-Martenot, Meursault, Cote de Beaune, Cote d'Or, Burgundy, France
    Image of winery
    After World War II, André Boyer inherited the Domaine from his mother Lucie, who up until then had been running the winery entirely by herself. In 1945 André married Juliette Devèze who was born and raised in the adjoining village of Puligny Montrachet. Their son, Yves, continued his families tradition and married Marie Cécile Martenot, the daughter of a winemaker in Meursault. Their son, Vincent Boyer, is now the newest owner of the Domaine.

    The Domaine has in total 10 hectares of vineyards spread across various locations of the Côte de Beaune including Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses and Pommard. From 1997 to 2007 the Domaine acquired more parcels of land giving them a wider selection of appellations including Meursault "Les Tillets", Meursault 1er Cru "Les Perrieres", and Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru "Le Cailleret".

    The vines and soil give the wine its great quality which is why it is important to manage them with both respect and care. To ensure that the wine produced is of high quality, traditional methods are used involving little or no product (sprays, chemicals, etc.) soil cultivation, crop care, green harvest, and hand picking. Using these old fashioned methods and less machinery allows for the wines to develop naturally which means they are very similar to organic wine making, however they don't have the 'Bio' label.

    Meursault

    View all wine

    Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

    While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

    Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

    Chardonnay

    View all wine

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While practically every country in the wine producing world grows it, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. As far as cellar potential, white Burgundy rivals the world’s other age-worthy whites like Riesling or botrytized Semillon. California is Chardonnay’s second most important home, where both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines enjoy great popularity. Oregon, Australia and South America are also significant producers of Chardonnay.

    In the Glass

    When planted on cool sites, Chardonnay flavors tend towards grapefruit, lemon zest, green apple, celery leaf and wet flint, while warmer locations coax out richer, more tropical flavors of melon, peach and pineapple. Oak can add notes of vanilla, coconut and spice, while malolactic fermentation imparts a soft and creamy texture.

    Perfect Pairings

    Chardonnay is as versatile at the table as it is in the vineyard. The crisp, clean, Chablis-like styles go well with flaky white fish with herbs, scallops, turkey breast and soft cheeses. Richer Chardonnays marry well with lobster, crab, salmon, roasted chicken and creamy sauces.

    Sommelier Secret

    Since the 1990s, big, oaky, buttery Chardonnays from California have enjoyed explosive popularity. More recently, the pendulum has begun to swing in the opposite direction, towards a clean, crisp style that rarely utilizes new oak. In Burgundy, the subregion of Chablis, while typically employing the use of older oak barrels, produces a similar bright and acid-driven style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy its lighter style.
