Domaine Buisson-Battault

We are delighted to be working with this domaine who came recommended to us by one of our most sought after Meursault producers.

Family-owned for 5 generations, François joined his father André in 1985 and fully took over the domaine in 1991.

The wines are pure, generous yet racy, characterful with poise and charm. Authentic white Burgundy from a hugely talented winemaker. Exciting stuff.
