Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2017

    This old vine village cuvée is an exquisite example of Volnay. Sweet, seductive cherry fruit aromas, it is bright and pure with a lovely silky volume. Beautifully harmonious, with subtle rounded tannins, this is dangerously drinkable!

    The 2016 Volnay Vieilles Vignes spent 12 months in oak before transferring into vat. It has a tightly controlled, slightly introspective bouquet at first, gradually opening to reveal blackberry, raspberry and light oyster shell aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, full of energy and tension with real precision toward the vivid and quite compelling finish. There is real terroir expression here, and it should age well over the next 10 to 16 years. Drink 2021-2035

    Score: 88-91

    This too is sufficiently reduced to render the nose difficult to read today. There is fine concentration to the delicious and sleek middle weight flavors that possess equally good punch and energy before terminating in a solidly complex and persistent finale. This isn't especially refined but it does possess good underlying material. Drink 2022+

    Bright crimson. Interesting mulchy nose with clean, fresh fruit. Confident palate entry with good fruit intensity. Real drive, GV. Drink 2023-2030

Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley

We are delighted to introduce the wines of Thomas Bouley in 2015, joining our selection of great Volnay domaines. Those customers who bought Burgundy en primeur in the early days of Goedhuis Co may have a sense of déjà vu! Johnny first bought from Thomas’s father Jean-Marc in the 1980s. After a few years’ sabbatical it is wonderful to be reacquainted with this prestigious domaine whose wines we consider very special indeed. Much has happened in the intervening years. Son Thomas now makes the wines and is one of the Côte de Beaune’s most dedicated growers, with an unstoppable energy and enthusiasm. They have also just completed one of the area’s most sophisticated new wineries right in the heart of Volnay. This investment will ensure that the already high quality of the domaine will only ascend. This is a great estate making wines which truly reflect Volnay and Pommard.

Region

Volnay

A red wine appellation only, wines from Volnay might be considered the most revered of southern Burgundy. They have been celebrated since the 18th century for their delicacy. But they are not fruit forward like those of Beaune or Chorey Lès Beaune nor have the brooding structure of Pommard.Instead, they have superb linearity, focus and poise while sheathed in velvety tannin. This slightly reticent personality comes out even more with a bit of age, though some can be approached very young. There are no grand cru vineyards in Volnay, but there are some excellent premier cru examples including Volnay Les Champans and Volnay Les Caillerets. Chardonnay grown in the shared Santenots vineyard must be labelled as Meursault.
