The domaine was founded in 1947 by Henri and Marguerite Buisson and is situated in the village of Saint Romain. Today the estate is run by Henri's son, Gilles with the assistance of his two sons, Franck and Frederick. During Gilles's tenure the domaine's holdings have increased significantly to include Corton Charlemagne, Pommard and Volnay. Today there are 19 hectares in all and the estate was certified organic in 2009. This delightful Meursault is from 60 year-old vines, all the grapes are hand harvested and no additional sulphur is used. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels before further ageing in French oak for 6 months, of which 20% is new oak.
A clear, limpid-yellow in colour with flashes of green. Hints of new wood on the nose leading to ripe tropical fruit aromas. Exotic, stylish and very expressive. On the palate, medium-bodied with floral, honeysuckle fruit with overtones of hazelnut. Classically buttery with a good lemony acidity. The tannins are well balanced and the finish persistent. Lovely with duck with nectarines, pigeon in a honey sauce with fresh figs or quenelles of halibut with saffron sauce.
