Burgundian winemakers for over three centuries, the Buffet family produce a range of exceptional Burgundy on their Volnay estate in the Côte de Beaune. This superbly poised, subtle 2018 delivers delicate red fruit and many layers of leafy complexity.
Beyond the Label
Ripe, open and generous berry notes, mineral grip with silky tannins
Raspberry, blackberry, rose petals, subtle spice, expressive
When it comes to winemaking heritage, Marc Olivier Buffet has centuries of it! His family first began growing grapes in 1692, making their domaine, tucked behind the village church, one of the oldest in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. Volnay is the star appellation of this area (they also make Pommard and Savigny Lès Beaune), fabled for its sensationally silky, supple Pinot Noirs. In 2018, Marc Olivier made the most of the hot, dry summer to produce a superb Burgundy with elegant, fragrant fruit. Berry and subtle rose petal aromas preface generous, ripe, red berries with silky tannins, a complex, earthy leafy layer and subtle spice from the 22 months in oak. A handsome partner for roast duck, a wild mushroom croustade or venison with ceps.
"The best wines [of 2018] are superlative, in the class of the very best that Burgundy can produce"
Jasper Morris MW Inside Burgundy
