Domaine Buisson-Charles, Meursault Vieilles Vignes 2017

$75.00 Excl. tax

Hints of hazelnuts and butter amongst the pear and apple fruit give complexity and interest; surprisingly approachable when young.

Michel Buisson was the third-generation vigneron at this domaine in Meursault. Despite being officially retired, the highly respected winemaker still finds much to do at the estate, which is now run by his daughter, Catherine, and son-in-law, Patrick Essa.

Patrick, who came to wine late in his career, has made up for lost time and is a very influential wine blogger (degustateurs.pro). As the domaine’s winemaker since 2009, Patrick has taken the house to new heights, producing wines that show great balance; they are concentrated and rich, yet pure and expressive, featuring both the crystalline purity and opulence of Meursault.

Buisson-Charles has holdings among the top vineyards of Meursault, as well as Pommard and Volnay; certain parcels of Meursault vines are more than 100 years old. Patrick believes the terroir, not the winemaking, should determine the taste of the wine, and his creations reflect the essence of their appellations.

Assembly of six different parcels the Meursault "village" of the estate comes from a selection of old vines over 45 years old . The six plots form an ensemble of more than two hectares with plots located all around the village. Some vineyards are in the hills - Virailles and Meix Chavaux - and bring freshness and tension, others in the hills just under the first growths, strongly mark the wine by bringing them body - Marcausses, White Vines and Pellans - while parcel of Millerands resting on gravel gives the whole a real delicacy.

Manual harvesting with grapes sorting on table in the plot. Pneumatic pressing. Static settling. Aging in barrels with 20% new wood. Bottling without collage.
