Reyane Et Pascal Bouley Volnay
Domaine R&P Bouley Volnay
In the heart of Volnay this is an estate that was handed over to the son 8
years ago. Pierrick has since won the title of ‘Young Vigneron of the Year’
from Bourgogne Aujourd’hui magazine. He uses minimal sulphur, none during fermentation and lets the wines evolve naturally. The results are wines
with very pure fruit, not masked by oak, silky tannins and really good length.
They are fantastic Volnay and taste just as Volnay should
Hand-picked into small boxes, hand sorted then loaded into the cuve for 20
to 30 days. The winemaking takes place without the use of sulphur so fermatation is quick but undergoes a cold pre-ferment soak for 5-7 days at 6 degrees. There is daily pumping over followed by max 3 punching downs to
extract the colour and tannins. The wines then spend 12 months in oak before being bottled with a tiny amount of sulphur to maintain the stability of
Tasting Note and Food Pairing
A delicate and floral nose with aromas of raspberry and violets. In the mouth
the wine is soft, elegant and full of fruit and energy.
Thanks to the typical softness and elegance of this Volnay it is the perfect
match for Guinea fowl, duck or quail.
