This beautiful Meursault is a 100% Chardonnay located in the heart of the Meursault in Le Limozin (Meursault). The soil is clay/limestone and the vineyard. The grapes are harvested by hand. The wine is aged for 12 months on its lees in oak barrels (70% 1 year and 30% new oak) and then a further 6 months in the tank. The Le Limozin is a wonderfully elegant Meursault without the excess of wood. Everything is perfectly balanced with a bit of brioche, yellow and green apple and light citrus. Good acidity in the mouth, medium to full bodied and good minerality which is typical of the Le Limozin
This Buisson Battault et Fils Le Limozin is great with shellfish, fish, white meat, foie gras and soft cheeses.
In 1985 François Buisson joined the domain of his father André. From 1985 to 2003, father and son were the perfect combination, one with experience and the other with passion and the desire to innovate. François became manager of the estate in 1991. In 2005 François moves into the former home of his grandparents. The domaine invests a lot in new equipment and vinification methods to make pure, elegant wines that are representative of the terroir. Domaine Buisson-Battault has vineyards in Beaune, Pommard, Puligny and Meursault with four 1er Crus: Charmes, Gouttes d'Or, Genevrières and Porusots.
François cultivates the vineyards in a way that does not affect microbiological life. He only uses organic fertilizers and no herbicides. He attaches great importance to pruning. The vines, depending on their strength, are led in Royat or Guyot to allow the best concentration in the grapes. The harvest is done by hand to keep the bunches of grapes intact as much as possible until arrival at the winery.
François wants to express the terroir in his wines without becoming too tough. He is looking for elegance. The wines must be pleasant at an early age and remain so over time. The wines are raised on their 'lie' to feed them and give them body so that they can also be stored well. That is why they are aged for 12 months in oak barrels, 20% of which are new. For the 1er Cru's another 6 months will follow in cuves.
