Sous Roche 'Absolu' is the one of the rarest of all Buisson wines. Each vintage, they select a number of barrels, preferring those that seem naturally a little reductive, and choose not to add any SO2. This is a glorious zero-zero wine -both high toned and pretty and floral, but also with some darker fruit, a little pepper and cured meats and sweet earthiness. Sublime.
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
“Glowing purple, the bouquet brings such a smile to the face, the fruit is both more floral and perhaps a touch darker, and even more is revealed in the aftertaste. More of the spicy white pepper to finish. Glorious!”Jasper Morris MW, Inside Burgundy
