Buisson-Charles has been an insider secret for years, though with a bit of international attention, the wines are now in the spotlight. Michel Buisson is the third generation of this winery, now verging on 80 years old and still tending to the vines. His daughter Catherine and her husband, Patrick, have become the faces of the new generation. The domaine’s approach is modest with less new oak usage and production at 35,000 bottles, though the wines themselves are anything but modest. 12 hectares of vines comprise the estate, most of it based in Meursault from very old vines ranging from 65-100 years old. The style of Buisson Charles is classic and restrained; the wines attest to this in volumes.
This Bourgogne Rouge comes from a couple of parcels located between the villages of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet from vines averaging over 50 years in age. Ageing is done in barrels, 25% of which are new. This is rich and voluptuous, yet easily enjoyed now or in a few years.
