Tasting notes: Bourgogne Pinot Noir Cotes Chalonnaise Buissonnier

Bourgogne Pinot Noir Cotes Chalonnaise Buissonnier. Beautiful ripe raspberry and blackberry scented fruit aromas, it is soft, open and easy drinking in style with layers of fruit, and balanced by a nice freshness that gives the wine elegance and charm.

Food match: 

Meats cooked in sauce or grilled, such as a choice charolais filet, a burgundy fondue and strong cheeses. With several years aging, it can be an excellent accompaniment to lamb, duck, and game.

.Producer/Region :

Established in 1931, the Caves de Vignerons de Buxy is based in the Côte Chalonnaise, 46km south of Beaune. The vineyards are managed by 120 families who are rewarded for the quality of their grapes rather than the quantity that they produce. Strict viticultural guidelines are followed with a programme of continual vineyard assessments. It is very rare that one can equate Burgundy with affordability as well as quality; however this top Cave Co-operative can certainly lay this claim.

This wine is made exclusively from the Pinot Noir grape.The grapevines are situated between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National and are generally grown midway up the hillside. The soil is very shallow and ventilated. The heavily pebbled earth is ideal for the Pinot Noir. These grapes are grown from calcareous soil with high limestone content on the Côte Chalonnaise. The slopes are gentle and face towards the east and southeast.

The wine is aged first in stainless steel vats, then in oak barrels or casks. How long the wine is aged in casks depends on the vintage.
