75cl * 13.0% ABV * Cote d'Or, Burgundy
In the heart of Volnay, this estate was taken over by Pierrick Bouley in 2012. He has since won Young Vigneron of the Year from Bourgogne Aujourd’hui magazine. Made in a 'hands-off' style with minimal sulphur, allowing the wines to evolve naturally during fermentation. The result: wines of very pure fruit, unmasked by oak, showing silky tannins and formidable length – just as this sort of wine should taste. Jessica (our Vindependents 'boots on the ground' in Burgundy) marked this as her estate of the year!
Volnay proper in all but name. Fresh, baby-faced Pinot Noir with lots of mouth-filling volume and lip-smacking flavour. All you could hope for from Bourgogne Rouge.
Drink to 2028.
