Vincent Bouzereau 2016 Meursault

Description

Bouzereau is a famous name in Meursault: the family has been growing wine since the sixteenth century, and today all the Bouzerons are cousins. Vincent Bouzereau is the son of Pierre, the brother of Jean-Marie, the nephew of Michel and the little cousin of Hubert and Philippe, all winemakers.  His domaine was created in 1990 and they have 11 hectares of vines: 6 planted with Chardonnay, 4 with Pinot Noir and 1 with Aligoté. The majority of their plots are in the commune of Meursault, but they also work vineyards in Puligny Montrachet, Monthélie, Auxey-Duresses, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune and on the mountain of Corton.

One distinguishing feature of the family is that they have always always produced their vines with massal selections rather than clones and their current vines are from pre-phylloxera selections. They identify the vines that are healthy and vigorous and keep prunings for reproduction on selected rootstocks. For them, this practice makes it possible to have better biodiversity compared to the clonal selection.  Their farming techniques include plowing to promote life underground. Most vines are grown in single guyot, while others are in cordon de royat.  The vinification is traditional and the musts are neither yeasted nor treated with enzymes.  All wines see oak aging except the Aligoté.  Aging lasts between 12 and 18 months according to the natural evolution of the wine and its tasting. Reds are aged in barrel for between 16 and 18 months.
