Jean-Claude Boisset Bourgogne Chardonnay 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Since 2002, Jean-Charles Boisset has transformed Boisset from a traditional négociant into a viniculteur, a cross between a viticulturalist and a vinifier. He hired one of the best of the younger generation of winemakers to revitalise the J.C.Boisset wines, Gregory Patriat, who had spent the previous three years at Domaine Leroy. Patriat spends a great deal of his time in the vineyards, and pays the growers by the hectare, rather than by tonnage, in order to ensure low yields. He also prefers to work with organic growers, as he finds they produce better fruit. “40% of the growers we work with are organic, but only 5% of Burgundy’s growers are organic,” says Patriat. This vast appellation brings together four great regions. Yonne to the north, with its fresh, mineral wines; followed by the Côte d'Or, with its rounder, deeper whites; the Côte Chalonnaise with its pleasant wines; and lastly, the Mâcon region to the south, with a range of styles varying with the individual soil and exposure. Soils are mostly limestone-clay. The Bourgogne Chardonnay is bright, light gold in colour with a rich, buttery perfume giving way to clean, intense fruit on the palate with an excellent balance between ripe, biscuity flavours, a steely, mineral character and a long, fresh finish.

Since 2002, Maison Jean-Claude Boisset has been transformed by Mr. Boisset’s son, Jean-Charles, from a traditional négociant into a viniculturalist, a cross between a viticulturalist and a vinifier. The result is the Jean-Claude Boisset collection of wines - Burgundy through and through. From one of the best young winemakers emerging in France, Grégory Patriat, each of the appellations is the result of rigorous selection and has been produced in limited quantities. This is the way of things in Burgundy… handcrafted in meticulous detail, according to a philosophy of ‘letting the vine do the work’. A taste reveals our aim of striving for authentic wines in which human intervention has been kept to a bare, discreet minimum; the wines are concentrated, well-rounded, and natually, expressive of their terroirs.
