Fourth generation vigneron Michel Buisson has now been superseded by his son-in-law Patrick Essa at this domaine in Meursault.
"The estate of Michel Buisson – whose son-in-law Patrick Essa now takes the lead – crafts white Burgundies for the Riesling or Chenin-lover, offering clarity, refreshment, and minerality yet not stinting on richness or structure, and wines whose track record in the cellar is among the best of any Chardonnay-based wines in the world." David Schildknecht

N.B. No new wood here. Aromas are a touch mealy, with a wisp of almond and the ripe, apply fruit. This is really fresh right from the off. There's a crystalline aspect of the apple and lemon fruit. Very fresh; very pretty and floral. Very long with a fine minerality. This gains in weight and breadth and dimension at the death. Fabulous. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
