Chardonnay may be the most versatile white wine grape, often seen as a blank canvas. It displays various flavors and aromas depending on where it is grown and more specifically, how it is made. It can range in Palate Character from Bright & Crisp to Rich & Full depending on the climate. It is also particularly malleable and highly affected by winemaking choices like as malolactic fermentation, lees stirring, barrel fermentation and ageing practices.

Henri & Gilles Buisson

Saint-Romain, Burgundy


The Domaine Henri and Gilles Buisson long history includes deciding to domaine bottle as early as 1947 and adopting organic farming in the 1970s, well before it was mainstream


The Buissons farm 19 hectares of vines in Saint-Romain, an often overlooked village given its proximity to the more famous village of Meursault. This relatively cool terroir benefits from well-exposed vineyards situated on steep slopes of limestone, marne, and clay. 

The Buissons make an effort to impart as little impact on the natural character of the terroir as possible, hand-harvesting grapes and undergoing a natural fermentation before aging in neutral oak barrels, creating wines of brisk acidity and minerality.
