2016 Volnay 1er Cru 14-Bottle Tasting Pack. Save 25%


Volnay 2016 4-Bottle Pack Header
A 14-Bottle Pack showcasing the Premier Crus of Volnay
With Burgundy always creeping up in price many buyers are looking for communes that provide excellent wines at prices that are still reasonable.
For me the Village that ticks the most boxes is Volnay. 
The official Burgundy website describes the wines as such: "Volnay, admired for its delicacy, its sap, and its bouquet, has always been thought of as the most feminine of Bourgogne wines. Though certain of its terroirs modify this judgement with more vigorous and muscular versions, it truly does stand out among the red wines of the Côte de Beaune like the lipstick imprint of a kiss... The colour varies from bright ruby to a light garnet. Its aromas are of violet, gooseberry, cherry, and - with age - spices, game and cooked prune. It has an immediate appeal which, added to a slight natural precocity, means it can be fully open while still relatively young. The attack is fresh, the finish is warm. Drinking this wine, one seems to bite into a fresh fruit and breath in its heady aroma."

The aromatics of Volnay have more in common with the wines of the Cote de Nuits. Whilst some vineyards are certainly feminine, others such as Clos des Chenes and Champans can be masculine and powerful. The varied terroir of the commune certainly shines through. On top of that the wines age extremely well.

In recent times we have added several Volnay producers to our portfolio. They all produce lovely wines and each has an individual style.

The container arriving this week contains three Volnay specialists. Those familiar with the sleepy Village of Volnay will know that the three domaines are literally within a stone's-throw of each other. Domaine Pierrick (formerly Pascal) Bouley is an old favourite. Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey and Domaine Francois Buffet are new to our portfolio and this will be our exciting first delivery.
Volnay has so much to offer that I thought I'd assemble a Mixed Premier Cru Dozen. When I realized we have 14 different wines in the container I could not decide which two to exclude so instead of a Mixed Dozen we have a Mixed 14-Bottle Pack. 
I'd like you to share my enjoyment in the wines of Volnay so the 14-Bottle Pack is available at a 25% Pre Arrival Discount. The wines arrive this week so you only have a couple of days to take advantage of this Pre Arrival Discount.
The 14 wines include two Monopoles. Clos des Chenes, considered by most to be Volnay's best vineyard, is included from all three makers. What a great comparison!
