Rich, concentrated and palate coating, Charmes is definitely the flirty one - showing off with a generosity of ripe peaches, pears and citrus. Floral notes, honey and sweet almonds come into play – with notes of minerality emerging. Stylish and vibrant. A special second release of 2017, representing wines with 20 months elevage – as labels indicate. Vincent Boyer decided to hold back a small portion of 2017 for extended elevage. These wines were raised for 20 months - one year in barrel and the remaining time in a concrete egg. Boyer said he didn’t want to do the entire time in barrel, feeling that would deliver too much oxygen. The results were sensational – with striking clarity, freshness and purity.

Yves Boyer-Martenot Description

It has been 15 years since Vincent Boyer took the reins from his father and put his stamp on Domaine Yves Boyer-Martenot.  His tenacity in the vineyards and dedication to balance and freshness has led to wines of increased terroir clarity and chiseled Meursault typicity. Located in the heart of Meursault, this 4th-generation property boasts a lineup of remarkable, high-altitude lieux-dits and premiers crus that have few equals in the village.  Vincent allows only indigenous yeast in the cellar, using little new wood and bottling his whites with low levels of SO2 and minimal to zero filtration. The results recently are crystal pure Chardonnay from some of the best situated holdings in all of Meursault. Vincent’s dedication to old vines and tireless work in the vineyards is clearly evident in his wines, even though his decision to shy away from the limelight has kept these beauties under the radar for years. For those in the know, there is no doubt that is one of the elite estates in all
