Tasting Notes

    Goedhuis, December 2019

    This village cuvée is an exquisite example of Volnay from vines aged between 45 – 83 years situated just below premier cru Les Carelles. This is a warm plot, with high iron content in the soil. With dense black cherry flavours, masses of sweet dark fruit and hints of ground coffee, this has superb weight and richness. It is finely textured with a grippy, grainy tannic core. Great potential.

    The 2018 Volnay Vieilles Vignes comes from vines just below Les Carelles on red soils in a warm microclimate. It has an attractive bouquet of red cherries, raspberry and orange blossom aromas, plus a touch of undergrowth that emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a candied opening. This is a very sweet Volnay with kirsch and touches of fig toward the spicy, black-pepper-tinged finish. Enjoyable, if not the most intellectual of all the Volnays I tasted on my visits. Drink 2022-2030

    Score: 89-91

    This too is slightly reduced but the underlying fruit is clearly ripe. The old vines are in evidence on the palate as the medium-bodied flavors possess very good concentration and focused power on the borderline robust and notably firmer finale. I very much like the mouthfeel though note that this is constructed to reward extended cellaring if desired. Outstanding. Drink 2026+

    Score: 86-89

    Grown on the lower slopes, sheltered from the wind. The soil is red clay with some iron. Fine rich deep purple with a wealth of sultry fruit on the nose. This is very ripe, though falling short of prunes, more black cherry, showing some oak, a bit of alcohol, but avoids too dry a finish.

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.
