Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

"Winemaker Vincent Boyer is an anomaly—a hard-working, hands-in-the soil grower focused on quality in an appellation where many wineries have hired enologists and coasted on Meursault’s reputation. Domaine Boyer-Martenot is a fourth-generation family winery where the wine in the bottle unquestionably lives up to its noble appellation. While most Meursault winemakers blend, Vincent bottles many of his wines from his villages-level vineyards separately. Through the efforts of this estate, these single-vineyard Meursault wines have found their voice—showing just how varied and captivating great Meursault can be.

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."
