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.

Those familiar with the sleepy Village of Volnay will know that the three domaines in this Pack 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 their 2016's are the first wines we have landed.
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 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 today at a 25% Discount. The wines are all in stock for immediate delivery.
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!

Denis Pere Paulands label
Domaine Denis Pere et Fils Corton Les Paulands Grand Cru 2016
A Grand Cru Bargain
A Grand Cru Red from 2016 for less than $150.00? That's a rarity!

Darren Harris:
Les Paulands is an interesting vineyard. It is the only vineyard that I know of that has Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Villages appellations. It is only 1.05 hectares in size and the majority of that belongs to the Comte Senard. 2 barrels produced, 50% new oak. Lifted, floral nose of small red-black fruits. Punchy in the middle with acidity and freshness. Sleekly muscled with long, defined tannins driving the wine to its climax. Cellar for 5 years then investigate.
Normally $155.95
Special $132.50
