White Burgundy: Caves la Buxynoise

From the famous Cave de Buxy comes these exceptional Côte Chalonnaise Burgundies. In 1981, at their fiftieth anniversary, they were successful in convincing the National Institute of Appellation d’Origine to create a new appellation: l’Appellation Bourgogne Côte Chalonnaise. These vignerons are the ones most responsible for the renaissance of this part of Burgundy. Five villages also have received new appellations d’origine: Bouzeron, Rully, Givry, and Montagny. These particular wines were created to show off the excellence of the wines available from the Cave de Buxy. Over the years, the winemakers know best vineyard sites and subsequently the best barrels from these sites. These barrels are the ones selected for ‘La Buxynoise’, generally chosen for the by the glass selections in the best Burgundian restaurants. Try one and you’ll see why.

  • Pinot Noir Rose

    This Pinot Noir is grown on chalky-clayey soils with a high percentage of clay on the south and southeast hillsides of the Buxy area, just a few miles south of Rully, Mercurey, and Givry.

    The vines are trained in a single Guyot pruning, and the grapes are picked at the optimum ripeness determined by the winemaker. The grapes are then sorted to keep only the best fruit, and then macerated at cold temperature for two days to extract color and aromatics before the short skin contact as fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks with temperature control. Aged part in tank 6 months before bottling. These are bottled on the property.

    The color is between clear pink and onion peel, and the nose has a lovely aroma of cherry, red fruits and flowers. On the palate it shows fresh cherry/red fruit flavors and a balanced finish. Drink for up to 2 years after the vintage with cold cuts, picnic fare, barbecue or as a aperitif on the deck on a warm day.
