After an excellent five day trip to one of our favourite wine regions, Burgundy... we're delighted to announce that we have added another fantastic grower: Thomas Bouley.
This estate is outstanding and offers a fascinating insight into what can be produced by young, innovative growers. The 34 year old superstar of the village, Thomas Bouley took over his father's estate at the ripe old age of 28. His father knew that Thomas was crafting excellent wine in his early 20's. This charming, enthusiastic son of Volnay is a delight to meet and chat with. He has managed to extract excellent fruit from some of the best sites in Volnay and Pommard. Production of his 2016 1er Crus has been tiny - too small to offer to our clients. However, as an entrée, we are offering 4 wines....:
Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Beaune 2016 at £30 per bottle
Volnay 2015 at £40 per bottle
Pommard 2014 at £45 per bottle
Pommard 1er Cru 2016 Rugiens at £95 per bottle
We always have a knack of discovering growers before their prices rocket and the world's press discovers them. Thomas Bouley is destined to be a superstar as he not only has magic in his fingers but also a wonderful nature that leads wine writers and enthusiasts to his cellar door for a memorable tasting. Time for everybody and a natural understanding of nature and wine making are hard to come by. This is indeed, a rare individual.
