With a fine pale golden hue, the nose is fresh and fruit-driven with lots of citrus and lemon peel when young and with hints of honeysuckle and hawthorn. Grown on the limestone hilltops between Buxy and Saint Gengoux le National, this Côte Chalonnaise Chardonnay is fermented and initially aged in stainless before being transferred to oak for 3-6 months depending on the vintage.
Crisp and refreshing when young, the locals consider this to be at its prime after seven years – we’ve just never seen a bottle last this long!
Founded on 30 June 1931, by 98 pioneer wine growers from Buxy and some surrounding areas, the Cave des Vignerons de Buxy was created thanks to the determination of the Côte Chalonnaise winegrowers to pool their talents in a common project and make their wine, tend to their vines and sell and market their produce together. The story behind this company is one of an human and social endeavour stretching back over 80 years.
In the initial years their financial resources were very limited and it was only the energy and tenacity of these first wine growers that kept the Cooperative going. In 2004 the winery built a 33,000-hl capacity vathouse for both red and white wines on the Buxy site, boasting temperature-controlled stainless-steel vats along with a pneumatic pressing station.
In 2011 the winery proudly turned 80 years old and counted over 272 family-run domaines among its members, working the vines as their fathers used to do. Together, these men and women stand for the values of quality, conviviality and respect for the environment. Every year Alain Pierre, the oenologist for the Cave des Vignerons de Buxy, reappraises past approaches and cedes the upper hand to Nature, allowing the full character of the wine to shine through.
