Buisson Charles Corton Clos du Roi Grand Cru 2016
- Pinot Noir
- Red Wine
A spicy, pure, cool and strikingly floral-suffused nose blends strikingly complex aromas of dark currant, rose petal, violet, earth and plenty of sauvage nuances. There is an overt muscularity and focused power to the broad-shouldered flavors that terminate in an austere, rustic, palate staining and persistent finish where the minerality really comes up right at the end. This isn't quite as concentrated as the Santenots but it's even more powerful and even a bit more structured as well. Patience absolutely required. - AM
Domaine Buisson-Charles possesses top vineyards of Meursault, Pommard and Volnay. The vines are between 30 and 90 years old which allow the production of very concentrated wines destined for ageing. The estate is now run by the fourth generation, Catherine Buisson, and husband, Patrick Essa. As the winemaker, Patrick believes the terroir, not the winemaking, should determine the taste of the wine, and his creations reflect the essence of their appellations.
