"Pale yellow. Reserved aromas of tangerine, tangy peach, hazelnut and spicy oak are complicated by wet-stone minerality. At once thick and piquant, conveying a racier character than the broader, silkier Charmes. Classic dense, vibrant Genevrières with a long, slowly mounting finish that throws off notes of white truffle and flowers. This is superb. -- Stephen Tanzer"

"An overtly spicy nose speaks of essence of pear and apple along with acacia blossom, lavender and Asian-style tea. The sleeker and more refined medium-bodied flavors exhibit lovely minerality that, like the Narvaux, really comes up on the precise, indeed even chiseled, dry and linear finish. This isn't as dense as the Charmes but it's finer still plus offers a bit more overall depth."

The Wine
40-50 year old vines from the upper portion of Genevrieres-Dessus with southeast facing slopes. Clay-limestone soils, Indigenous yeasts, fermented in tank and then aged in barrel (10% new)
Unfined and unfiltered

The Estate
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 lieux-dits and premiers 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 and 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.
