Génot-Boulanger: Volnay 1er Cru Le Ronceret 2017

Volnay -

The 2017 vintage is one of the great years of the decade for Volnay and more generally for the Burgundy vineyard. A harvest that has done good to the winemakers after two years of dearth. Marked by very favorable climatic conditions, the harvest was very satisfactory both in terms of quality and maturity of the fruit and in terms of quantity. A vintage full of fruit and freshness. 

This Volnay 1er Cru Le Ronceret 2017 from Domaine Génot-Boulanger is a great Burgundy wine, full of finesse and aromatic intensity. The appellation takes its name from the Old French roncier, which refers to a bramble bush; the parcel was once rife with these thorny plants.  It comes from a plot of Pinot Noir planted in 1958, with a total surface area of 0.40 hectare. The vines are planted on a deep gravelly soil combined with Bathonian limestone, which is characterized by its stony and reddish aspect. 

The maturing of this Premier Cru is done in two stages, with first of all a 12 months passage in oak barrels and then a 6 months maturing in tanks. The Domaine Génot-Boulanger's approach is the least interventionist possible. It favors long fermentations, extractions that are as gentle as possible, no fining or filtration, to let the typicity of the terroir and the vintage express itself. 

Tasting comments:

The robe: light garnet with ruby reflections

The nose: sublime floral notes, which open on spicy notes and red fruit 

The palate: airy, lively, with a very beautiful matter

The advice of 12bouteilles: 

Volnay wines are often considered the most feminine in Burgundy. This Premier Cru of an extreme finesse and greediness is already ready to drink and will sublimate a nice plate of matured cheeses or a dish in sauce.
