Pierre Boisson Hautes Cotes de Beaune Rouge 2018
100% Pinot Noir. Pierre Boisson is the winemaker for his family's estate, Domaine Boisson-Vadot, and it is one of the fine, outstanding small producers in the village of Meursault that is not particularly well known beyond its native France. but has developed an almost cult-like following in certain wine circles. The Boisson family have been vignerons in Meursault for more than two centuries, and the wines today are as fine as they have ever been in the long and illustrious family history. Pierre is now in his mid-thirties and in addition to his duties at his family's estate, he also has a few wines under his own label from vineyard holdings on his maternal grandmother’s side of the family. That is where this beauty comes from. Pierre's wines are a classic, soil-driven, and racy style of wines that let the terroir shine through. This Hautes Cotes de Beaune is silky and full of wonderous aromatics that really show how this Pinot is coming from higher elevations. Try this no-brainer from one of the hottest names for those people in the know.
