La Cave de Buxy
Established in 1931, the Caves de Vignerons de Buxy is based in the Côte Chalonnaise, 46km south of Beaune. The vineyards are managed by 120 families who are rewarded for the quality of their grapes rather than the quantity that they produce. Strict viticultural guidelines are followed with a programme of continual vineyard assessments.
It is very rare that one can equate Burgundy with affordability as well as quality; however this top Cave Co-operative can certainly lay this claim.
A very fine and attractive Chardonnay produced from a blend of vineyard parcels scattered across the Côtes and around Buxy itself, offering subtle, creamy notes of cereal, peach, apple skin and a touch of wet stones. Open, quite lush with lovely texture bordering on tropical and a delicious mouthfeel. An excellent introduction to southern white Burgundy, especially in 2018 – a bargain!
A great match for pasta with salmon caviar.
