Meursault 2020 - Domaine Pierre Boisson

Meursault, Vintage 2020, Pierre Boisson

Add to my wishlist

Pierre and his sister Anne are the children of famous winemaker Bernard Boisson. Together, they’ve taken the helm of the Domaine Boisson-Vadot in 2017. A third of the 10 hectares family vineyard, whose grape vines were planted during the 1940s, is occupied by Pierre. There, he experiments on his own wines, on top of producing the estate’s. This more personal output is mainly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Inspired by Raphaël Coche-Dury’s style, Pierre sticks to traditional methods: no chemical fertilizers and plowing is done entirely by hand. Grapes are picked once they have fully matured, as a way to ensure a great tension in his wines, which are not filtered. He’s also chosen to have low yields and long aging (more than a dozen months) in oak barrels.

True precision work, by a winemaker who can easily shift between managing the family estate and its traditional wines, and producing his own vintages. The latter are a more low-key endeavor, although their prices remain extremely reasonable. With his sister Anne, Pierre is one of the best examples of what the new generation of Meursault winemakers can offer.

A Meursault winemaking family


Son of famous winemaker Bernard Boisson (who’s well known for his work at the Domaine Boisson-Vadot) and brother of Anne Boisson, Pierre works with his family and also offers his own brand of wines. Since 2017, Bernard’s two children have been helping their father run the family business. The 3.5 hectares parcel Pierre is currently cultivating is located on his dad’s vineyard, near the village of Meursault (on the Côte de Beaune).

Here, everything works just like it did in the good old days: no chemical fertilizers, the soil is hand tilled, the winemaking process takes a long time, the wines aren’t filtered… A technical work, just like his father Bernard taught him. The advice from his good friend Raphaël Coche is also a real boon to him. This made the Domaine, with its pure and tense wines, one of the best kept secrets in the entire Burgundy region.
