H. & G. Buisson - Bourgogne Blanc
Located in the picturesque village of Saint Romain, in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, Domaine Buisson reaches back to the 12th century. The estate is certified organic and biodynamic. Brothers Franck and Frederic are now in charge. Eleven of the 20 hectares of vines are in St Romain, across eight different sites, headlined by the signature plots of Sous La Velle (Chardonnay) and Sous Roche (Pinot Noir). These appellations have been overlooked since they are somewhat isolated in a valley behind Meursault and Volnay. Vineyard exposures are excellent, the slopes are steep and the soils are a mix of clay, limestone and marls. The slightly cooler temperatures result in a longer growing season and wines that carry a pleasant and refreshing acidity. The Buisson domaine is a fine source of terroir-expressive wines that offer outstanding value.
100% chardonnay coming from various sites in Saint Romain and Beaune. Hand harvested. Vinified separately and fermented / matured for 12 months in old oak barrels.
Classic touches of lemon curd and blooming spring flowers mix on the nose, while the palate offers creamy notes of apple, pear, and orange with razor sharp acidity. Delicious now!
