There’s a distinct concentration of expertise with white Burgundy in the Boyer-Martenot family. The modern era of the Domaine dates back to the 1940s, when Lucie Boyer handed the Mersault estate down to her son Andre. He married a woman from the neighboring Puligny-Montrachet neighborhood, also known for its rich Chardonnay-based wines. Their son Yves married the daughter of a winemaker in Meursault. As the Domaine enters its fourth generation, Vincent Boyer is managing the estate in his parents footsteps, along with a few innovations. 
This 2016 Genevrieres is rich with decadent notes of yellow apple and almond.
