Jean-Claude Boisset is a family-owned wine company founded in 1961. Jean-Claude’s first parcel of land was located in Gevrey-Chambertin and today the company is based in Les Ursulines, a former convent in Nuits-Saint-Georges, and run by his children Jean-Charles and Nathalie. Grégory Patriat, who had previously worked at the legendary Vosne-Romanée producer Domaine Leroy, joined in 2002 to revitalise and reinvent the house. He transformed Boisset into a ‘viniculteur’, working closely with the growers, guiding the wines from vine to bottle to achieve the desired quality. In 2018, they opened a new state-of-the-art winery, which reflects their modern, technical approach to winemaking. The limestone soil here is well-suited to Chardonnay. In the glass, the wine is straw yellow with white highlights. It has very intense bouquet perfumes with notes of citrus zest, green apple and toasty aromas of fresh brioche. The palate has excellent tension with concentrated fruit flavours that linger on the finish.
