  • This has turned out very, very well. Now showing some signs of maturity, but still that electric acid and great salinity and mineral streak. In the camp of the leaner Meursault producers (a la Roulot), this wine predictably had a "top Chablis" guess when served blind. There was also a hint of Coche-ness, which one of the tasters flagged. Very happy with this showing of this overachieving lieu-dit Village wine!

    For me ranked 3rd place. Powerful with great salinity. Lemon tarte and macadamia nuts.

    2nd place. More elegant and reluctant than 2010. Great length, cracking acidity 95

    2014
    The most precise and reluctant of these trio. 96

  • A terrific nose with citrus more than orchard fruit, chalk, marzipan, and jasmine florals. It's beautifully lifted and intense yet fleeting. Light to midwieghted on the palate, compact at first but opens up with air, and while still pretty focused, it has more balance. Chalky, with bright acidity and focus, there's a mineral chalky vein that dominates its mouthfeel. More citrus and asian pear, and florals, with nuttiness and subtle lactic notes add to the whole. Elusive, fleeting, and mouthwatering, it finishes clean yet long. Outstanding and youthful. A bit of additive contrasts: it's chalky and toothsome, but in a delicate frame. It lacks a bit of mid palate presence to make it really special. I love austere wines in general, and this was outstanding, but a little more meat on the bones would have made this fantastic.

    On day two it fleshed out a bit, adding some mandarin, lemon curd, and florals, while remaining finely detailed and mouthwateringly fresh. Drinking this I feel like I'm licking the mother rock. A soil and acid more than fruit driven wine. Hedonists run away. Me? I'll take another glass. 93

  • This bottle was great. Mature round fruit with a slight hint of wax and salt - might be at peak

  • 𝟐𝟎𝟏𝟎 𝐁𝐨𝐢𝐬𝐬𝐨𝐧-𝐕𝐚𝐝𝐨𝐭 𝐆𝐫𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐬 𝐂𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐫𝐨𝐧𝐬🔥

    One of the most highly sought after Meursault wines and have been a hot name in recent years.

    Deep gold color. 13% abv. This 2010 bottle opens up quickly with distinct gunpowder like flintiness, smoky, lemonade, ripe orchid fruits intermixing with butter popcorn, some caramel, slight toasty oak with underlying nuttiness and sweet spices.

    Impeccable crystalline fine and focus despite its expansive and intensive nature. Almost saline like savoury mineralite and bright acidity seamlessly combining the multi facets distinct nuances together. A one of a kind Meursualt. Way above its Village status!



    Domaine Bernard Boisson is a father, son and daughter team with both children now bottling wines under their own individual labels too.
