Tasting notes for the Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru "La Pièce sous le Bois" 2020 - Buisson-Charles

  • EYE: A rich and luminous white, whose golden and vibrant hue immediately catches the eye.
  • NOSE: This wine reveals a complex olfactory bouquet, where wafts of ripe pear, roasted hazelnuts, and subtle floral notes of hawthorn come together. Buttery and slightly woody nuances add an additional dimension to this olfactory experience.
  • MOUTH: The creamy texture and perfect balance between liveliness and roundness offer a harmonious sensory experience. The flavors of white-fleshed fruits, such as peach and apple, delicately intertwine with notes of vanilla and brioche. The persistent finish leaves a pleasant freshness in the mouth.


In short: The Meursault-Blagny 1er Cru "La Pièce sous le Bois" 2020 produced by Buisson-Charles has a golden robe and a captivating nose. In the mouth, it reveals a perfect balance between ripe fruits, woody nuances, and freshness. Ready to be experienced today, this wine can also be appreciated after 5 to 8 years of aging in your cellar. Pair it with grilled lobster with lemon butter, roast chicken with a creamy sauce, or a simple platter of aged goat cheeses.

A big little estate in Meursault


The Domaine Buisson-Charles, created in Burgundy by Michel Buisson and his wife during the 1960s, is nowadays managed by another couple: the winemaker Catherine Buisson, Michel's daughter, and her husband Patrick Essa (an engineer and trained oenologist). A family tradition which is not stopping anytime soon, since their son, Louis Essa, took the helm in 2020.

It's near the village of Meursault (on the Côte de Beaune) that you'll find the estate's vineyard. 6,3 hectares in total, just enough to make sure the terroir stays human-scaled. The Domaine Buisson-Charles produces 26 different cuvées, like the Volnay or the Chassagne-Montrachet for example. Yields are intentionally low, especially since the grapevines are quite old (90 years, for some of them).

What the estate really wants is for its wines (reds and whites alike) to stand the test of time. That's why the Buisson-Charles family has decided to not only use a horse for plowing, but also to reject any sort of chemical herbicide (they are currently going through the process of the French "Bio" certification). An honest and respectful approach to nature and the terroir.
