Saint-Romain Blanc "Sous la Velle", Domaine Henri & Gilles Buisson 2011

The Buisson family has worked the vineyards in Saint-Romain for eight generations. Gilles now heads the domaine, which has a fine collection of plots in Saint-Romain, of course, but also in Pommard and Corton.

Serious work in the vineyard and in the winery allows the domaine to produce deep and racy wine that will age well. A very good address. The domaine's 2011 white Burgundies is similar in quality to their 2010, showing energy and extra freshness.

Here is what former San Fransciso wine editor, W. Blake Gray, wrote about the 2010 vintage of this particular white Burgundy:

"Though we're in Chablis, the wines are supposed to represent all of Burgundy, so we had only 2 from Chablis. Six of the 13 wines we were served were Premier Crus. But the standout was not. Domaine Henri & Gilles Buisson "Sous la Velle" Saint Romain 2010 was the best wine of the night, with an earthy, leesy nose, generous lemon fruit, a sensual mouthfeel and good balance. 95 points. I hit the table pronouncing my love for it and was embarrassed by my vehemence, but later learned it won the plurality of votes at our table as the best. I have the last glass of it beside me as I type this from my bed. This is why I decided to live-blog this: I don't know anything about this wine, other than that it's great. The region isn't one of Burgundy's most exalted." W. Blake Gray, The Gray Report, 2013 Roederer Award Online Wine Columnist/Blogger of the Year
