Renaud Boyer settled in 2004 in a small wing of his family’s vast domain in Meursault. Today, he is the sole actor on his 3-hectare micro-estate. He inherited vines from his uncle that had already been certified organic and biodynamic since 1986. The parcels are in Saint Romain, Puligny-Montrachet and around Beaune. His wines are made entirely without sulphur, the vinifications are done whole cluster, and his highly developed style is quite reminiscent of Henri Frédéric Roch’s (a bold statement, I know, but we’ve fallen head over heels for this guy!). His wines have naturally been rejected by the labelling authorities, and therefore must be sold as Vin de France, though the names of the cuvées hint at their origins (like SR for Saint Romain, etc.). And how about those very refined labels? Boyer’s Japanese wife designs them. Meanwhile, the wines have only continued to reach new heights since the 15-16 vintages. A splendid shock to the system guaranteed!
