Utterly Brilliant White Burgundy:
2016 Boisson-Vadot Bourgogne Blanc

Posted by Ian McFadden

The Boisson family makes dynamite white Burgundies.

With each passing year, I expect my obsession with the wines to fade. Instead, the opposite happens: I grow more impressed with the wine's clarity, finesse, and unforgettable impact.

The Boisson family produces white Burgundies exactly as we like them: intensely mineral, nervy, with a perfectly judged richness.

The sexy marketing line for Boisson is that Pierre Boisson is friends with Jean-François Coche's son, Raphael. There are some parallels that are worth mentioning. Both producers turn out incredibly precise wines with an emphatic mineral cut.

The vines for the Bourgogne Blanc are in Meursault, and the wine carries some of the appellation's presence and nutty richness. We love the wine's verve, deeply etched refinement, and slow-building complexity. Boisson-Vadot's 2016 Bourgogne Blanc is an incredibly complicated edition of the wine. There's almost painful concentration with a serious drive, cut and lift. Few white Burgundies delivery so much for the price point.

Boisson's wines have gone cult, and nearly the entire range is aggressively hunted down. I'm very happy to be able to offer the 2016 Bourgogne Blanc. It is a thoroughly exciting bottle of white Burgundy and it over-delivers incredibly for the price point.
