From North Berkeley Imports:

 The estate practices sustainable farming, avoiding pesticides and herbicides, and using indigenous yeasts for fermentation. Harvest is exclusively by hand.

Grapes are pressed then fermented naturally in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks. As of the 2017 vintage, winemaker Vincent Boyer has modified his aging regime to include cement “eggs” (a large, ovoid container made of neutral, unlined cement) and larger oak cask. Wines are aged first in cement egg; then transferred to cask for a further year of aging.  All wines bottled for North Berkeley Imports are unfined and unfiltered. 

The highest vineyard in Meursault as well as the plot with the chalkiest terroir, ‘Perrières’ is the leanest, most mineral of Boyer’s premier crus. Lime blossoms, crushed stones, white pepper, white fruits.
