Saint Romain Blanc, Renaud Boyer 2022
Renaud Boyer, originally from Meursault trained to be an engineer before switching careers and becoming a vigneron of land in Saint Romain, previously belonging to uncle Thierry Guyot, an organics enthusiast who had been working the vines free of chemicals since the 1980's. He has since converted to biodynamic status, and is certified by Demeter. The vines are now spread between the Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet and Saint Romain. As you might expect of someone who looks to Emmanuel Houillon, Patrick Meyer and Philippe Jambon for inspiration and guidance, his work in the cellar is kept to a minimum. Renaud's wines are seen as strong competition to some of the famous names in the region.
Made from 80-year-old vines planted in white marl soils, Renaud’s Saint-Romain Blanc is wonderful white Burgundy, being lavish, concentrated, textured, mineral and dense. Aromatically it is exotic, bursting with marmalised fruit and spice. The acidity is defined and offsets the density, and in every way, this Saint-Romain possesses that energy you only find in great natural wines.
