Boyer-Martenot is one of THE premier Meursault producers.
"Les Chaumes" is one of the domaine's prized single vineyards; it is a specific lieu-dit (vineyard) that is surrounded by 1er cru sites.
The value of this Meursault is uncanny!
Like all Martenot Meursault's, "Les Chaumes" is artisanally made by 4th generation family members. The harvest is done entirely by hand; the grapes are sorted immediately in the vineyards with only the best selection going into production.
The wine is pure and elegant with pronounced minerals that cut through the flavors of citrus and white flowers. It is juicy, succulent and weightless with off-the-charts clarity and precision. Poached apples, crushed cashews, verbena, and toasty secondary flavors wrap your palate.
The 2016 white Burgundies are proving to be spectacular and classically made wines.
You get to cherry-pick one of the finest by Boyer-Martenot!
