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.
The bouquet is brimming with fresh ripe fruits, leading to a palate that is creamy in texture, exhibiting ripe peach characters and a chalky minerality.
The fermentation was carried out in temperature controlled, stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve the freshness of the Chardonnay grape, with a further resting on the lees to provide added complexity.
