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.
