Get to know: Domaine R&P Bouley, Bourgogne Cote d'Or Pinot Noir 2020
The Bourgogne Cote D'Or Pinot Noir is a fruit forward, fresh approachable style of Burgundy made for drinking now. Full of ripe strawberries, raspberries and red cherries, silky smooth with bright acidity.
This is a great red wine to try with a fattier fish such as salmon.
In the heart of Volnay this is an estate that was handed over to Pierrick 8 years ago and he has since won the title 'Young Vigneron of the year' from Bourgogne Aujourd'hui magazine. He uses minimal sulphur and allows the wines to evolve naturally, aiming for purity of fruit, silky tannins and good length.
