This is ripe yet distinctly floral and airy with its pure mix of pear, apple, lemon zest and soft spice wisps. The intense middle weight and overtly stony flavors are equally tightly wound on the chiseled, complex and impressively long finish...

PRODUCER

Buisson-Charles

Domaine Buisson-Charles is a 13-acre domaine in Meursault, on the Cote de Beaune. It was founded by the Buisson family four generations ago, and is today run by Catherine Buisson and her husband Patrick Essa. The estate has Premier Cru parcels in Meursault and Volnay. Clive Coates has written that the estate “is a very good source, and it is getting better.”

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Puligny-Montrachet, Le Cailleret

Le Cailleret is a 7.8-acre Premier Cru vineyard in the appellation of Puligny-Montrachet, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Le Cailleret is just above the Grand Cru Le Montrachet. Burgundy writer Clive Coates notes that at its best, Le Cailleret and its diminutive neighbor Les Demoiselles “make exquisite wines: not as powerful as Le Montrachet itself, but of pure breed, excellent grip and beautiful balance.”

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
