Domaine Henri et Gilles Buisson St Romain Combe Bazin Rouge 2015 – 12 Bottle Pack

Tamlyn Currin reviews for Jancis Robinson, 16+ points, “Certified organic. Hand harvested. Aged in French oak barrels. Slight linalool perfume, a hint of waxed wood, cherry blossom. Fluid, translucent fruit that seems to fill every corner of the mouth with jewelled light, lifted and pure and ballerina-like. Delicately sketched flavours, fine tannins that apply just a fraction more pressure on the finish. Acidity holds fruit sweetness back in the mid palate, and overall the impression moves more towards tomatillo than red fruit, with a faint trace of aromatic wood on the finish. Tannins fill out on the end. I’d wait a bit.” (TC)

More Information

Cradled in the hollow of the hills of Saint-Romain, the two energetic brothers Franck and Frederick have inherited their family’s passion for the land. The Buisson family has been present in the village of Saint Romain in the Cote d’Or since the twelfth century.

In 1947, Henri and Marguerite Buisson decided to begin bottling their wine at the domaine and selling it under their own label. Since the 1970s the vineyards have been worked according to organic principles. The vineyards are beautiful and the wines follow suit.

The soils are limestone and marls and both the Chardonnay and the Pinot Noir vines are averaging 50 years of age. As rigorous as the farming is, the wine-making is decidedly hands-off.

After sorting the grapes twice, there is partial stem inclusion and fermentations commence with native yeasts. Malolactic fermentation is natural and long, elevage takes place over ten months and only a touch of new oak is employed – thus, the wines have precision and energy.
