In previous years, we have sold through the whites very quickly and somewhat unfairly, the red wines linger in the warehouse. The red wines are sensational and are worthy of interest. With the hype of these 2021 whites with EXTREMELY low volumes, we will be incorporating a rule that we have never enforced before; If you purchase a Meursault whether it be village or premier cru, we will ask that you also purchase a bottle of red - i.e. you purchase a mixed six pack of Meursault, you will also be required to purchase a mixed six pack of Red Burgundy from Domaine Buisson Charles.
Because of this new rule, we will not be putting the products online. To order, we ask you to reply via email or telephone with your requested order.
