2011 Meursault Vieilles Vignes Domaine Buisson-Charles

Average critic rating : 89.0 points



A ripe but cool nose features notes of pear, white peach, citrus and hazelnut. There is good cut and vibrancy to the delicious and solidly well-concentrated middle weight flavors that terminate in a very crisp, dry, detailed and lingering finish. The old vines are very much in evidence and this is one to definitely consider. Tasted: Jun 11, 2013. Drink: 2017+

Domaine Buisson-Charles is run by Catherine Essa-Buisson and her husband Patrick Essa and compromises a modest 6 hectares on the edge of Meursault as well as having vines in Volnay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Pommard. There has been much investment in new vinification facilities and cellars to ensure wine making techniques allow the wines to reflect the terroir. No herbicides are used and this as well as the vine age gives an intensity to the wines, 70% white and 30% red. Vines are between 30 and 90 years of age, with average being 55 years old. Harvest allows 30 to 50 hl per hectare and when the wine is made, it spends time in barrels that are 25 to 30% new oak.
