Volnay 1er Cru, Champans, Domaine Francois Buffet

Volnay 1er Cru, Champans, Domaine Francois Buffet

Domaine Francois Buffet is a Burgundy family-run domaine, which dates back to 1692, and is currently managed by Marc-Olivier, son of François, though still with help from his parents. They have an impressive range of Volnay (Taillepieds, Clos des Chenes, Champans, Carelles, Clos de la Rougeotte) and Pommard (Rugiens, Clos Micot, Poutures) vineyards.

Marc-Olivier uses some whole bunches when he feels the vineyard is suitable, though not for young vines. The wines are matured in barrel over 22 months, with one racking in the summer.

A superb vintage, the 2017 is still perhaps a little young. However, the nose is beautiful with wild strawberry, raspberry and cherry fruit running through it. The palate is round and elegant. There is a perfect freshness with a silky structure and a feeling of ampleness in the mouth. This wine will continue to develop and will cellar for 8-12 years.
