At a Glance

3000 bottles produced per year on this small parcel that is just over one-half of a hectare. Simultaneously powerful and silky, the tannins here make for a wine with a long finish. Serve with white meats and a variety of cheeses.

Winemaking

Respect for the environment is paramount to Domaine Buffet. No herbicides nor anti-rot products are used on the vines and the general approach is close to biodynamic.

Hand-harvesting and careful sorting ensure the quality of the grapes used in the wines. De-stemming is carried out according to each year’s weather and results. Oak ageing for 18 months; 20% in new barrels.

The region – Pernand-Vergelesses, Burgundy
