Sous La Velle is Buisson’s signature white wine site, located beneath Saint-Romain village (Velle is an old word for village). It sits at an average of 370m all, in the sloping centre of the hillside vineyard, unlike the Sous la Velle climate in Meursault which is on flat ground. There is a great balance of clay and limestone (more clay than Sous la Velle).

About the wine

Tasting notes

Planted on the marl scree of Saint-Romain, the vines take root in the limestone and thus offer a beautiful minerality to the wine. The attack is frank with notes of candied lemon then, this dense wine, fatter than the others, with complex aromas and multiple horizons, opens on a beautiful saline and iodized vibration. The divine alliance of a mineral world and an explosive fruitiness.

The Grape

Chardonnay

One of the most planted, versatile and popular white varieties in the world. As a stand alone grape, Chardonnay is not the most interesting, nor complex varietal out there...but in the hands of a great winemaker it can be turned into one of the world's greatest pleasures! From the best bubbles of Champagne, to the lean, unoaked and mineral expressions of Chablis and the opulent, oaked and complex whites of Burgundy, Chardonnay is responsible for making some of the greatest expressions of white wine on the planet.
