Christophe Buisson Saint-Romain Blanc, Cote de Beaune, France 2020
VINTAGE : 2020
COUNTRY : France
REGION/APPELLATION : Burgundy, Cote de Beaune
VARIETAL : Chardonnay
Christophe Buisson is a young, passionate vigneron with all the skills for success. From his home base in Saint-Romain, the little known and thus underappreciated (and undervalued) appellation in the hills behind Meursault, Christophe has been honing his craft for the last decade. The appellation of Saint-Romain is ampitheatre-like, with the best sites located on stony slopes beneath a striking outcropping of limestone cliffs. You access the village after traversing Auxey-Duresses on the way to the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. Christophe owns land in some of the best sites in Saint-Romain, Sous le Château and La Perrière, sites that would likely be premier cru in a village such as Chassagne-Montrachet.
Light yellow with greenish tints. Still understated on the nose opening up to fruity, mineral notes. Full attack, silky texture, lovely exuberance. A clean style, still reticent in terms of aroma. An ideal complement to delicately-flavoured fish.
