2017 Domaine Jean Marc Bouley Volnay Premier Cru Les Carelles
The Bouley family can trace their winemaking lineage back to the early 14th century and Jean-Marc took over the family domaine in 1985 after the death of his father. Today the estate spans 12 hectares in Volnay, Pommard and Beaune. Since 2006 winemaking is carried out by his son Thomas, who returned to France after vintages in Oregon and Felton Road in New Zealand. These are wines that bridge the gap between traditional Burgundy & the New World, showing superb transparency of terroir, superb purity and fruit density throughout their length.
The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Carelles is a beauty bursting with notes of rose petal violet dark chocolate wild berries and ripe cherries. On the palate it's medium to full-bodied elegant and concentrated its ripe core of fruit displaying lovely energy and succulence framed by fine-grained elegantly chalky tannins and concluding with a long finish. This will be a cuvée to seek out in bottle.
