Volnay 1er Cru Les Angles 2015, Domaine Lucien Boillot
£72.95 per bottle
Les Angles is a Premier Cru climat of the Volnay appellation in the Cote de Beaune. Situated just to the east of Volnay village itself. A delicate ruby colour, the bouquet is floral and fruity. On the palate it is full of soft jammy black fruit flavours such as blackcurrant, cherry and plums. Well structured with a hint of minerality and smooth silky tannins.
Perfect when served as an accompaniment to roast Guinea Fowl or Partridge.
The Cote d`Or is the overarching area encompassing the Cote de Nuits and Cote de Beaune. Burgundy`s finest wines come from within the Cote d`Or region, the whites made from Chardonnay and the reds from Pinot Noir.
The Boillot estate originated in Volnay in the 1850s and was relocated in the village of Gevrey Chambertin some 100 years later. A vineyard holding across 14 appellations has been pieced together over this time. Now managed by Louis and Pierre Boillot and Pierre is today a winemaker on top of his form, making velvety soft red Burgundy with impeccable structure.
