En Primeur | Domaine Jean-Marc & Thomas Bouley 2019

Founded in 1919 by François Bouley, today it is in the hands of the fourth generation, Thomas Bouley. He has an intuitive and well-informed understanding of his family’s vineyards, something passed on from one generation the next. Although not certified, the domaine follows organic practices and in 2017 they completed the work on a highly advanced new winery. The introduction of more fermentation tanks has allowed him to be extraordinarily precise in his winemaking. Sadly, yet another small harvest in 2019 meant it wasn’t put to full use this year. As Thomas pointed out, seven of the last nine vintages in Volnay and Pommard have only had a 50% crop. Is this the new norm going forwards?

Thomas’s view is that the Pinot Noir vines are adapting to climate change. Hot periods have been seen before, for example the great 1947 harvest was picked in August, and he thinks nature is evolving to cope. He thinks the terroir is clearly reflected in his 2019s, a year which he finds has greater typicity in comparison to 2018.
