Tasting notes: Garnet red robe with light purple reflections. A wine which will age wonderfully but ready to drink, full of fresh fruit and a warming finish.
Story: Many view Volnay as being the most feminine of Burgundy wines. Usually more open and less tannic than neighboring Pommard, the Bouzereau’s village wines shows notes of cherry, vanilla, spice and an ethereal violet note.
Vincent and Aline are both native Burgundians, very attached to their family and conscious of the rich and cherished heritage they have received from their predecessors. It is this heritage that they wish to transmit to their children, from the work of the vine to the production of the wine, aware that each bunch of grapes remains a gift from nature, a gift from God.
Vincent’s heart is in Meursault, not far from its church tower, where he grew up and learned from his father and grandfather the winemaker’s craft. It is in this village that since 1990, with the aid of his wife, Aline, he has practiced his trade with passion. Vincent’s energy and determination allowed them to acquire multiple new parcels along the way, in addition to the family vines passed down to him from his parents.
Based in Meursault, on the BurgundianCôte de Beaune,the domaine’s holdings cover ten hectares, dispersed among 8 villages: Aloxe-Corton, Puligny-Montrachet, Monthélie, Auxey-Duresses, Volnay, Pommard, Beaune and on the little mountain of Corton. While the original vineyards have been in the family for generations, Vincent and Aline have developed the domaine’s holdings through the methodical acquisition of parcels. In this way, new appellations have gradually made their appearance on the list of wines over the years.
Everything begins in the vines, and Vincent loves his work there throughout the year: winter pruning, subsoiling treatments, working the soil in the spring, attaching the branches, pulling weeds, de-budding, vine training, replacing the dead rootstock, repairing stakes and wires, trimming the branches, green pruning if necessary, and sustainable spraying, remaining always at the vine’s disposal: a full itinerary of work to accomplish!
