This estate is family-owned for 5 generations, and they farm eight hectares of vineyard land across 14 generations.
In 1985, François Buisson the youngest of the family, joined his father André, who has been making their wines since 1945. In 1991 François took over running the domaine, and he strives to reflect the terroir of each wine and to produce elegant wines which are enjoyable when young yet offer good potential for bottle age. All his wines are aged on their fine lees in barrel for 12 months (with 20% new oak) to give them fleshiness and ensure excellent cellaring potential.
The Bourgogne blanc fruit comes from the Les Clous Perrons and les Magnys lieu-dits. The Meursault planted vines range in age of 15-65 years of age and this is aged for 1 year in barrel, 10% of which is new oak.
‘A Meursault in all but name - this is exciting stuff! Toasted nuts, hints of lemon yoghurt and a precise line of stony minerality with a hint of reduction (in a very pleasant way!). My favourite match with this is turbot baked with lemon and herbs in the oven.’ Philglas & Swiggot
