Jean-Marc Bouley Hautes-Côtes de Beaune, Burgundy, France 2015
From father to son through numerous generations, the Bouley family cultivates vineyards in Volnay. Today, Thomas runs the estates and is making a name for himself amongst the great producer in the region. The fruit from this vineyard averages about 30 years of age coming from a hillside right above Volnay. If you like Burgundy with some age, but not the high price point, this bottle is perfect right now, showing earthy and tertiary notes that are enhanced by red fruit of a sunny vintage.
