Description

Gouttes d’Or, ‘drops of gold’, is the most Northern of the main Meursault 1er Cru. The Buisson Battault vines are in the top part of the vineyard, where the poor soil gives wines with a distinct mineral spine. The 2019 has a extremely focused nose full with spring flowers, dried thyme and crushed basil. There is also plenty of the ripe citrus fruits one would hope for. The palate has a palpable tension with zesty citrus, and rich peachy fruit. The finish is crisp, zingy and a little saline.

The wines are fermented and go through Malo in oak, only 20% of which is new. Francois likes to keep the wines in barrique for the first year, then move them to stainless steel tanks. There is no bâtonnage in barrique but pumps the fine lees into tank as well as the wine. By gently keeping these in suspension he gets a similar effect to a very gentle bâtonnage and believes the wines add depth and richness during this time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Francois Buisson’s reputation continues to grow as one of the finest exponents of the Appellation. His wines balance Meursault’s classic richness with taut, zippy acidity and a poised minerality. The domaine has many old vines planted by Francois’ Grandfather and enviable plots in some of the village’s best vineyards. The sense of pride in the family history is palpable here. His wines are characterized by purity of fruit and high-toned minerality, developing lovely length and expression of ‘terroir’.

Not a great Meursault

I don’t feel the buttery oily Chardonnay normally present in great Meursault. I Don’t recommend it.
