2014 Saint-Romain Rouge

Christophe Buisson

2014 Saint-Romain <i>Rouge</i> Christophe Buisson - Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant
Nestled deep in the valley that separates the prestigious Burgundy appellations of Volnay and Meursault lies Saint-Romain, an off-the-beaten-path gem that offers terrific value for its fine reds and whites. Christophe Buisson is one of the few Saint-Romain specialists, with holdings in some of the village’s best vineyard sites. His parcels are situated on steep slopes surrounding the town’s ancient château and backed by enormous white limestone cliffs, slightly higher in altitude than the vineyards of neighboring appellations. The result is a longer growing season with a later harvest date, giving wines marked by a fresh acidity, bright fruit, and a mineral note that stimulates the palate. This Pinot Noir was fermented in concrete tanks and aged in used barrels, offering immediate drinkability in a region where most wines of this level of complexity require years of bottle age to show their best. Try it with a fried pork chop, poultry, or anything involving wild mushrooms.

About Burgundy

In eastern central France, Burgundy is nestled between the wine regions of Champagne to the north, the Jura to the east, the Loire to the west, and the Rhône to the south. This is the terroir par excellence for producing world-class Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

The southeast-facing hillside between Dijon in the north and Maranges in the south is known as the Côte d’Or or “golden slope.” The Côte d’Or comprises two main sections, both composed of limestone and clay soils: the Côte de Nuits in the northern sector, and the Côte de Beaune in the south. Both areas produce magnificent whites and reds, although the Côte de Beaune produces more white wine and the Côte de Nuits more red.

Chablis is Burgundy’s northern outpost, known for its flinty and age-worthy Chardonnays planted in Kimmeridgian limestone on an ancient seabed. Vézelay is a smaller area south of Chablis with similar qualities, although the limestone there is not Kimmeridgian.

To the south of the Côte de Beaune, the Côte Chalonnaise extends from Chagny on its northern end, down past Chalon-sur-Saône and encompasses the appellations of Bouzeron in the north, followed by Rully, Mercurey, Givry, and Montagny.

Directly south of the Chalonnaise begins the Côte Mâconnais, which extends south past Mâcon to the hamlets of Fuissé, Vinzelles, Chaintré, and Saint-Véran. The Mâconnais is prime Chardonnay country and contains an incredible diversity of soils.

Trust the great winemakers, trust the great vineyards. Your wine merchant might even be trustworthy. In the long run, that vintage strip may be the least important guide to quality on your bottle of wine.—Kermit Lynch
