Jean- Marc and Thomas Bouley

WHO WE ARE

Although the Bouley family has been rooted in Volnay since 1527, the Domaine itself was established in 1919. The current manager and winemaker, Thomas Bouley, is the fourth generation to manage the domaine, which currently comprises 8.5 hectares. Essentially organic practices prevail, and Thomas farms his vineyards to restrain production naturally, excluding herbicides and chemical fertilizers, pruning back and de-budding to only 5-6 bunches per vine, regular ploughing, top thinning (rognage),and grass between the rows (enherbage). More often than not, the grapes are de-stemmed, although there is some limited use of whole cluster fermentation. Generally, Bouley vinifies for about three weeks in open vats after a short cold maceration, with fermentation temperatures allowed to reach to 32°C. Typically, élevage occurs in 30-50% new oak over 2 winters (18-20 months). There is no fining or filtration.
