Domaine Henri & Gilles Buisson St Romain Blanc Sous la Velle 2020

This plot, called "under the velle", in other words under the village, is indeed very exactly located under Saint-Romain le Haut, 300 meters in the middle of the hill, and extends over 2.5 hectares in the heart of the valley. .  At 60 years old, this symbolic vineyard, which has greatly contributed to the reputation of the appellation, is one of the two founding plots of the estate.  Planted on Saint-Romain marl scree, 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 with a beautiful saline and iodine vibration.  The divine alliance of a mineral world and an explosive fruitiness.

They say a rising tide lifts all boats, and with each new vintage, wines from once-overlooked appellations like Saint-Romain are taking serious star turns of their own. This cellar-worthy stunner would cost twice as much if it hailed from one of the 'big three' Chardonnay villages.
Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier
