Tasting Notes: Buisson-Charles is a small producer in Meursault who sources fruit from several small properties. The color is dark ruby, with aromas of raspberry, apple and cherry blended with floral notes and spice. On the palate, sweet/tart fruit flavors harmonize with hints of allspice and some earthiness. The texture is lush and silky, ending with firm tannins and a hint of blueberry. This is true Bourgogne Rouge in a modern style that still respects the terroir. Very nice now, it will be exceptional in five to seven years.
