One of the first wines we imported this was Paul's own little plot of Sauvignon that was hand made to perfection. We've all grown a bit bigger and certainly uglier, but the Buisse Sauvignon stays as teu to its origins as ever. Neither too bold, nor too light and with emphasis on more subtle green fruit and salty mineral notes.
Producer Information: Paul Buisse
The story began in 1905 with Paul's great grandfather Eugène, who founded and ran a prosperous and efficient business selling table wine by the barrel.
After ten years working with his father to learn the trade, Paul Buisse took over the family business in the 1980s. At the time, sales of table wines were plummeting in favour of appellation wines, and bulk wine sale was forever replaced by sale by the bottle. He soon became proficient in his new profession of wine producer and merchant, adding another string to his bow by acquiring some Touraine AOC vineyards.
Today, the Chainier family continues where Paul Buisse and his family left off with the same passion, beginning a new chapter in the story of the Paul Buisse Winery.
