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.
Like so many domaines in France the young generation has brought changes and a rapid rise in quality. Whilst the English-speaking critics may be a little slow to catch on the major French guides are not. The domaine has received excellent reviews in the 2013 editions with Bettane and Desseauve saying the price-quality rapport makes Domaine Buisson a must. La Revue du Vin de France notes their excellent holdings and serious work in the vineyard and winery have produced ageworthy wines of great breed.
Our little discovery is not so secret any more!
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. They are serious wines with depth and complexity. And they are incredibly affordable The Sous la Velle blanc has to be one of the best sub-$40 whites I have ever tried.
If you love great Burgundy at exceptional prices I suggest you grab a few Domaine Henri and Gilles Buisson wines at our Pre Arrival Prices before the wines arrive next week. You'll get some great wines and you will save 15% on landed prices. With prices starting at just $36.50 a bottle how can you go wrong?
