A family story ...

The family began purchasing the vineyard in the late 1920s. Henri and Marguerite Buisson acquired full ownership of the domaine in the 1950s. Their son Gilles Buisson and his wife, Monica, took over the domaine from Henri and Marguerite, adding prestigious vineyards to the estate: Corton Grand Cru, Pommard, Savigny les Beaune, Volnay and Beaune. Today, the domaine consists of 19 hectares of vineyards.

Pinot Noir : Saint-Romain, Corton Grand Cru "Rognet & Corton" "Renardes", Pommard, Volnay, Beaune, Monthélie, Auxey-Duresses 1er cru, Savigny les Beaune.

Chardonnay : Saint Romain, Corton Grand Cru "Charlemagne", Meursault, Auxey-Duresses.

Viticultural Practices

Our estate produces fine wines in the respect of tradition and terroir. We hand harvest, limit the use of chemical products (no herbicides or pesticides), plough the soils, and earth up during winter. Yields are kept low (mainly by spring de-budding) to concentrate the expression of terroir in our grapes.

Wine making Techniques

Vinification is carried out on the property according to traditional methods. Fermentation is long and slow, using only the natural yeasts and bacteria present on the grape. Matured in French oak barrels for one year, our “village” appellation wines are closely followed by an oenological laboratory until they are deemed ready for sale.

Wine in progress

Our estate is constantly researching and experimenting to increase our knowledge and obtain the highest quality. Currently we are testing out various ways to eliminate the use of all chemical products from the vineyard to the bottle. We are also looking at the feasibility in the cellar of relying solely on the force of gravity to propel the wines through the various stages of vinification. Lastly, but equally importantly – we have a serious quality control project underway to ensure that nothing but the best cork is used for Henri & Gilles Buisson wines.
