Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley Volnay 1er Cru Clos Des Chenes 2007 sees blackberry and dark cherry fruit, exotic spice and toasty oak aromas leading into an impressively ripe, chewy and sweetly fruited palate with hints of roses and violets.

The Volnay premier cru Clos Des Chênes is one of Jean-Marc Bouley’s masterpieces. It comes from two parcels in the upper part of the vineyard on the border with Monthelie, where the vines face south-east on a limestone-clay soil with a stoney surface. 60% of the vines are 54 years old, the remainder 34 years old. Bouley gives his Clos Des Chênes a three week cuvaison period and ages it in oak casks (with 50% new oak) for 20 months. Full and opulent with dark cherry and dark chocolate flavours, and a long-lasting finish, we suggest cellaring this until it is at least 3-5 years old.
