The Wine Advocate


The Wine Advocate - The 2013 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets comes from young 10-year-old vines in what Thomas Bouley opined is the best terroir in the appellation. This vintage is 100% destemmed because of the age of the vines. Matured in one-third new oak (one new out of the three!) it has a refined bouquet with wilted rose petal scents infusing the bright, vivacious red cherry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, fleshy tannins that again, disguise the backbone of this Volnay. There is good depth here and a little salinity on the linear finish that begs another sip. This is very fine.

The Producer

Jean-Marc Bouley

Jean-Marc Bouley

Jean-Marc Bouley was born into a family of vignerons and began working with his father at the domaine when he was 14.

He now has 12 hectares of vines in Pommard and Volnay and the majority of his production is red. However, he also produces a small quantity of exceptionally well defined and well-structured White Burgundy which he sells under the Hautes Côtes de Beaune appellation. They represent remarkable value for money and are the equal of many White Burgundies selling at twice the price.

The Grape

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy's Côte d'Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climats of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.

The Region



The finest and most elegant red wines of the Côte de Beaune are grown in Volnay, a village which might be twinned with Chambolle- Musigny in the Côte de Nuits, for the high active chalk content in the soil and comparatively low clay content.

Whereas in earlier times Volnay was made in a particularly light, early drinking style, these days there are many producers making wines which age extremely well. The best vineyards run either side of the RN73 trunk road.
  • 98 hectares of village Volnay
  • 115 hectares of Premier Cru vineyards (35 in all). The finest include Les Taillepieds, Clos des Chênes, Champans, Caillerets (including Clos des 60 Ouvrées) and Santenots in Meursault.
