About the maker
Pierre Boyat's estate straddles the border of Macon and Beaujolais and is one of those vignerons that is fanatical about soil and vineyard biodiversity.
Pierre was once working on his family estate, farming conventionally, until meeting a notorious natural producer Phillipe Jambon. He sold the family property and has been working on new parcels since 2007. His wines are all organic and no additives, filtering or fining. By and large, his chardonnay parcels are planted on clay and limestone while the gamay is planted on sandier, more granitic soils. The reds are mineral, medium-bodied and very nourishing and the whites are ripe but with a freshness that comes from low PHs, the result of years of great farming.See the Pierre Boyat collection here
