JEAN-CLAUDE BOISSET MARSANNAY BLANC 2016
Jean-Claude Boisset was radically transformed with the arrival in 2002 of viniculture Grégory Patriat, one of the best viticulturalists/winemakers of his generation in Burgundy. Grégory had spent the previous three years working in the vineyards at Domaine Leroy and still spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, paying his growers by the hectare in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. Unlike other Burgundian négociants, Grégory specialises in making wines from 'lieu-dits' or tiny plots of vines, something which accounts for the limited production of most of his wines.
This Chardonnays is rich and exuberant in its youth, with a stony, mineral acidity lifting the richness.
