Made from several different parcels in the Meursault appellation, the harmony between wood and wine makes this Chardonnay a very generous wine with a strong bouquet.
Fresh, with aromas of butterscotch, wet stone, minerals, nutmeg, and other baking spices on the nose, as well as a hint of caramelized butter and a background note of subtle perfume, while the palate mostly suggests apples (very ripe red apples) or apple cider. Vegetation, stony minerality, and good acidity help balance the intense fruit flavors and add complexity. Lingering, lively fruit flavors enhance an extended finish. Already drinking well, but still developing.
Food pairing: fish and white meat chicken in sauce
Not your typical fruit-forward, buttery Chardonnay. Floral and mineral elements dominate the nose and mid-palate, and there’s a bit of bone-dry pear on the finish. Rather than sip this wine on the porch, sit down with it over a rich dinner—perhaps prawns in a beurre blanc sauce.
Food pairing: Creamy sauces
The Creator of This Wine
A believer in the here-and-now, Gérard Boyer of Domaine Boyer-Gontard hews to traditional techniques yet produces wines that are full of fruit and ready to drink early. With a doctorate in oenology, he believes in consistently producing young wines with “funky fruit” flavors. Our Sommelier states: “I’ve never had a wine from him that I didn’t like.”
