Smoking good Pommard. Pure, light touch on the extraction, smart cooperage, really graceful tannin without losing that classic Pommard posture. Black cherry compote, candied plum, a hint of something bluer in there like cassis, floral pastille, warm spices, damp leaves, leather, a smokey minerality and goût de terre. Beautiful showing, smashed with chicken roulade w/ speck, lentils, and braised chard. — 5 months ago
Do not want to make too much noise any more about the wines of the Boisson Vadot family because they are so fucking good...and because it already becomes more and more difficult to buy them. If you want textbook Burgundy whites then this is what you should drink. The whole range from the simple burgundy white to the Chevaliers and Genevrieres does deliver and ages well. — a year ago
Really delicate meursault from Pierre Boisson. Def goes light oak for a delicate style. Innovative family that split up the domaine before silly heritage laws kick in. Looking forward to checking out the rest of the family labels! (Anne Boisson and Boisson-vadot) — 5 years ago
Perfect outside Spring wine. Honey, lemon zest, and tart stone fruit. Great acid to wash it all down. — 2 months ago
The third stage in the vertical tasting of this bottling. Out of order due to delivery...2017, 2015 & 2016.
The 2016 is reviewed best of the three vintages. I wouldn’t argue that at this point. It’s; rounder, more powdery minerals, volcanics & the chalkiness & sea fossils beautifully softer. I would only say the producer and their vintages are similar & consistent.
All of them drink like a nice, more expensive Meursault.

This is the Pierre Boisson Pommard, which I guess is the new incarnation of the.Boisson-Vadot Pommard. Decanted. Notes from 2 hrs open. This is a stunning wine, but perhaps more Volnay/Monthelie than quintessentially Pommard: none of the rustic and dark red fruit notes I usually imagine. On the nose: soft smoke, sweet wild cherry, pomegranate, soft spice...on the palate: fantastic acidity, excellent density, sweet wild cherry, pomegranate molasses, damp earth and only very soft tannin. — 4 months ago
2015 Meursault Les Chevalières, Dom. Boisson-Vadot - Like a little child, I was happy yesterday about the development of this wine. Even as a baby one could assume that there is a lot of potential in the bottle, but now - at the tender age of 5 years - the class of this wine is already very clear - with further potential upwards. Away from a rather technical description, the inner strength and calmness, combined with perfect balance and harmony, are absolutely remarkable. The nose offers a wonderful scent of verbena, orange oil - and blossom, delicate mint and a little cake cream. On the palate it also offers a wonderful complexity, silkiness and aromatic depth. Medium body with a medium + acidity. Aromatically, the fine fruit notes play with notes of cake cream and a delicate smokiness, which expresses very nicely the chalky - mineral vein. Here everything sits in its place, is perfectly dimensioned and combines in the best balance to a great, very great wine from a special non-cru location. — 9 months ago
Kellogg's Special K frosty cereal, sweet corn, yeasty and nutty. Compared to the Boisson Vadot, there is density and richness, but I suppose the age to this wine is a factor as well. A very different kind of Meursault. — 2 years ago
