Perched on a gently-sloping hill twenty minutes south of Beaune lie white Burgundy’s three gems: Chassagne-Montrachet, Puligny-Montrachet, and Meursault. The precise mixture of clay and limestone beneath these three neighbors is uniquely and perfectly suited to Chardonnay.
Each town has its own character, and we prefer not to pick a favorite. So we’ve collected a trio of village-level whites from these three iconic towns. Comparative tasting is the best way to learn about terroir. Invite over a friend or two, open these three side by side, and see what a few hundred yards of difference can make.
Bohrmann Meursault “Vireuils” 2017
This up-slope Meursault from our newest producer is clear, precise, and exquisite. Bohrmann uses little oak, allowing the pure, golden Meursault fruit to shine through.
Boyer-Martenot Puligny-Montrachet “Reuchaux” 2017
Vincent Boyer is a rising superstar in Burgundy (see Futures). His gorgeous village-level Puligny-Montrachet shows the depth and concentration for which the town is known.
