Boyer-Martenot seem to make better wines year after year. They are particularly praised for their Meursaults which combine the traditional fat, buttery fruit for which this village is renowned with a balancing crispness and fresh acidity. The domaine is currently run by Vincent Boyer, the fourth generation of the family, who joined his father in 2002 and took over the following year. No herbicides have been used since he took over and he would like to go organic but so far has stopped short of taking the plunge. There is a good range of village Meursault including l’Ormeau, Charrons, Tillets and Narvaux as well as 1ers Crus Charmes, Genevrières and Perrières. These are complemented by village Puligny and 1er cru Cailleret, purchased from Domaine Chartron in 1997. Bottling takes place immediately before the next harvest. More attention is now being paid to the red wines than was previously the case. Alongside Auxey Duresses and Pommard is a rare red Meursault, even more unusual in that it comes from Les Pelles on the Puligny side of the village. It is an attractive, red fruited wine though. The village wines are elegant and nutscented and are very approachable when young; while the excellent 1er Crus need 4-5 years before they fully reveal their full-flavoured, rich complexity. Of the latter Les Perrières is racy and steely, while Les Charmes, his best wine, is full-bodied, rich, honeyed and harmonious.
