Tasting Notes

"Raspberries, charcuterie, mushrooms. Something dank about the nose, which sounds terrible, but if you're a gardener or a mushroom forager, you'll know what I mean when I say it's glorious. It's the smell of the cardboard box that your baby tomato plants arrive in, a mixture of rich compost, wet good-quality cardboard (the kind you can chuck in the compost heap without worrying about bleach or dye), bruised tomato leaf, rain... impossible to describe. And impossible to make that combination sound poetic but if you know what I'm talking about, you will greedily fall on this wine. Cranberries on the palate, jam and dried and fresh, giving sweetness and depth and tang. Smudgy, gentle tannins daubed with graphite. A wine with a quiet, kind spirit, but certainly not without spirit. Certified organic. 60-year-old vines on west-facing slopes at 385 m. Hand-picked, spontaneous fermentation. The same wine as their Sous Roche but this time a barrel selection." - Tamlyn Currin,

More Info

The family name Buisson is closely linked to the destiny of Saint-Romain, a wine-growing village since its origins. All of them, from as far back as we can remember, have always worked the vines since 1758. It was Henri Buisson, a true pioneer, who bought 5 hectares of vines and thus wrote the first page of the family's destiny, in s 'setting up as an independent winegrower in 1947, when Saint-Romain obtained its AOC. Today Franck and Frédérick Buisson, son of Gilles and grandsons of Henri, took up the torch in 2008, with a passion for wines and their land as a heritage. They love this land and intend to both tell it in their bottles, make it known to the whole world and, above all, respect it. Henri Buisson was already following the “organic” trends of his time, in the 60s and 70s. Today, it is a vineyard of almost 20 hectares, certified “BIO” since 2009, that the two brothers operate entirely in biodynamics. since this year. By placing scientific innovation at the heart of their concerns while respecting the natural rhythm of nature, Franck and Frédérick place the family estate at the heart of progress.
