2010 Burgundy from just $36.50 a bottle!

Terrific wines at exceptional prices....

  
I have to admit I had never been to Saint-Romain before. It was the last day of my March 2012 trip and I was pretty much finished with tasting wine.
 
As I drove around the corner to the village I was met with a stunning sight - brilliant cliffs and a terrain that reminded me more of southwest France than Burgundy. It was beautiful!
 
I found Domaine Buisson in the centre of the charming old village and was invited into the living/dining room where I was introduced to the whole family. There were many bottles open for tasting and we soon embarked on a journey that opened my eyes to a part of Burgundy I did not know.
 
The Buisson family has been involved with wine for eight generations. The estate owns 19 hectares spread across the great names of the Cote de Beaune like Corton, Pommard, Meursault and Volnay but focus on Saint-Romain where they are located.
 
Buisson Sous la Velle label The Grand Crus are superb, and made with a very artisan hand. I love them and to be honest that was the main reason I arranged a vist! But is was the quality and price of the Saint-Romain wines that really ensured Buisson became part of our portfolio. Not knowing the wines well I had expected interesting but not particularly complex wines. How wrong was I! These are serious wines with depth and complexity. The Sous la Velle blanc has to be one of the best sub-$40 whites I have ever tried.
 
Whilst the domaine is not featured by the English speaking critics it receives excellent coverage from the French Guides and magazines. And I like that too!
 
If you love great Burgundy at exceptional prices I suggest you take a look at the wines of Domaine Henri and Gilles Buisson. Our first order is being assembled now and will be here late September. As usual our Pre Arrival Prices represent a saving of around 15% on landed prices.

2010 Beaune 1er Cru Les Cent Vignes

In stock now and just $55.00 a bottle!

 

The 2010 wines from Bitouzet-Prieur show great typicity with appealing medium body and lots of perfume. 

 

The Beaune Premier Cru Les Cent Vignes always shows well. Antonio says of the 2010 "gorgeous" and "This is a terrific showing". Charming enough to drink now but even better with a little time in the cellar.

 

Bitouzet Beaune Label

 

Burghound: This is also quite fresh with cool red pinot fruit and a hint of earth that leads to nicely rich and succulent yet well-detailed middle weight flavors that possess a delicious yet moderately austere finish. There is good verve and plenty of personality and the fruit-forward character is very Beaune. 90 Points

 

How many Premier Crus from 2010 can you buy at $55.00 a bottle (not too many I expect).
