About Boisson Frère et Soeur
AboutThe question ‘How long has the family been growing wines in Burgundy?’ is met with a belly laugh from Bernard Boisson, followed by ‘Since Jesus was around’ by way of response. In fact, the first domaine bottlings were in 2000. Prior to that the grapes were sold to the négociants. The name Maison Leroy came up at this point but was quickly retracted, but one would not be surprised if that were in fact the case. There’s a connection with the Morey family way back, too.
Fair to say the Boisson family have been working these terroirs for a long time. Production these days sits at around 7,000 cases. Winemaking they say is straightforward, new oak never exceeding 30% and bâtonnage only in moderation. But they aren’t really giving much away. In the case of the Boisson family Bernard says ‘Je suis mort’ efficaciously a nod to the fact that by renaming the domaine Boisson Frère et Soeur they are futureproofing the next generation at least. Nothing else changes - it’s apparent that Pierre, Anne and Bernard grow and make all of the wines and they’re really just getting started.
