It is at once super fine and super concentrated with swathes of lime, preserved lemon, citrus peel and grapefruit penetrating the senses followed by a delicious buttered toast character, tongue-tingling minerals and all this capped off by a mouthwatering lemon acidity. Bright, focused and engaging with a finish that really lingers. Beautiful with fish, scallops, lobster and smoked salmon, and turkey. It’s also a lovely wine to simply sip on its own.
Domaine Henri et Gilles Buisson is a sensational producer. They are most definitely a feather in our cap. We don’t come across producers like this often, that aren't already being imported to the UK. In fact, it would be just a few like this in a lifetime, such is the quality of terroir they have, but more importantly what they’re doing with it.
FROM THE PRESS
“40-year-old vines on clay-limestone at 300 m above sea level. Hand-picked. Natural fermentation. Smells like a lemon-cream sandwich cookie. Restrained. Cool white fruit brushed with bay leaf, citrus lines drawing the finish.”Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com
