Several years ago, Michel Buisson, the third-generation vigneron of Domaine Buisson-Charles, entrusted the operation of this 6.3-hectare estate to his daughter, Catherine, and son-in-law, Patrick Essa. Now under the stewardship of their son, Louis, who oversaw the vinification of the 2019 vintage, the domaine has witnessed considerable success under Patrick’s leadership. The resulting wines exemplify a harmonious balance, characterized by concentration and richness. Vines are tended organically, and the wines see no chaptalization, acidification, or sulphur added during vinification. They are bottled without fining or filtration. Louis has followed in his father’s footsteps, espousing the estate’s philosophy that many Meursault are harvested too early and, as a result, are too lean and one-dimensional. The picking dates and other growing milestones, such as pruning, are later than most peers to extend the overall vegetative cycle. This approach yields wines of heightened richness, maintaining excellent acidity and tension. Buisson-Charles holds prized parcels in the Côte de Beaune, including century-old Meursault vines, firmly believing that terroir, rather than winemaking intervention, should govern the wine’s essence.
