Les Murgiers is the beginning of the Boulard range. The fruit comes from certified-organic plots in two Right-Bank villages west of Cumières in the Vallée de la Marne—Cuchery and Belval-sous-Chatillon—where the silty, marly clay-limestone soils favor Pinot Meunier. “Les Murgiers” are the local, traditional vineyard walls built from river stones dug up to make way for planting. - Importer Notes

The current bottling in the market of Francis Boulard et Fille “les Murgiers” Brut Nature is from the base year of 2016 and was disgorged in March of 2019. The cuvée is composed of its traditional blend of seventy-five percent pinot meunier and twenty-five percent pinot noir (after the 2015 version having been pure meunier), with all the grapes farmed organically. Half of the bottling is composed of reserve wines this year. The vins clairs are all barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts and raised in a range of older oak barrels and larger casks. The wine offers up a really beautiful bouquet of white peach, apple, fresh-baked bread, a fine base of soil tones, gentle smokiness and a topnote of meunier floral tones. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and plenty deep at the core, with very elegant mousse, fine balance and grip and a long, complex and vibrant finish. The acids here are nicely buffered and there is no shrillness from the zero dosage, with the higher percentage of reserve wines in the blend really adding to the breed of the bottling this year. Excellent juice. - John Gilman, View from the Cellar
