Wine Advocate 90
"The 2013 Meursault l’Ormeau from 90-year-old vines tucked behind the winery, offers a well-defined chalk-dust-tinged bouquet that opens nicely in the glass. The palate is well defined with a keen thread of acidity: pretty apricot and white peach notes that then ease back toward a refined finish. Excellent."
" Domaine Yves Boyer-Martenot is quietly going about producing some really quite excellent wines, mainly from around Meursault. He told me that he started picking on September 28 and over the next six days. Like several other producers, he had already bottled his 2013s when I visited in early November. They tend to be pretty wines best enjoyed in their flush of youth, a little more floral in style for Meursault with peach and apricot scents furnishing the aromatics. Perhaps they do not quite reach the heights of the 2012s, but mostly these are worthy follow-ups and display a thoughtful winemaking approach. These are wines you just want to drink and enjoy.

It has been 15 years since Vincent Boyer took the reins from his father and put his stamp on Domaine Yves Boyer-Martenot. His tenacity in the vineyards and dedication to balance and freshness has led to wines of increased terroir clarity and chiseled Meursault typicity. Located in the heart of Meursault, this 4th generation property boasts a lineup of remarkable, high altitude lieu dits and Premier crus that have few equals in the village. Vincent allows only indigenous yeast in the cellar, using little new wood and bottling his whites with low levels of SO2 and minimal to zero filtration. The results recently are crystal pure Chardonnay from some of the best situated holdings in all of Meursault. Vincent's dedication to old vines, tireless work in the vineyards is clearly evident in his wines, even though his decision to shy away from the limelight has kept these beauties under the radar for years. For those in the know, there is no doubt that is one of the elite estates in all of Burgundy.
