Domaine Buisson-Charles, Meursault (Burgundy, France) Vieilles Vignes 2021

($106, Martine’s Wines):  Domaine Buisson-Charles, a well-regarded Meursault-based family domaine, blends grapes from six parcels to make this stellar village wine.   Some are hillside parcels that provide grapes with higher acidity, and some are lower down that imbue the grapes, and subsequent wine, with more richness.  The first whiff predicts you’re in for a treat.  And the palate is not disappointed!  The blend of this impeccably balanced and vibrant village Meursault works.  It is generous, but not too, with vibrancy and incredible length.  It shows that old vines, in the right hands, of course, make an enormous difference.  This is an extraordinary wine.  Don’t be fooled by its village appellation.
