When it comes to winemaking heritage, Marc-Olivier Buffet has centuries of it! His family first began growing grapes in 1692, making their domaine, tucked behind the village church, one of the oldest in Burgundy’s Côte de Beaune. Volnay is the star appellation of this area (they also make Pommard and Savigny Lès Beaune), fabled for its sensationally silky, supple Pinot Noirs. In 2017, Marc-Olivier made the most of the excellent quality to produce a superb Burgundy with elegant, fragrant fruit. Berry and subtle rose petal aromas preface complex, ripe, red berries with silky tannins, a complex, earthy leafy layer and subtle spice from the 18 months in oak. A handsome partner for roast duck, a wild mushroom croustade or venison with ceps.

"The 2017 reds are very good, often excellent, and from time to time, bloody awesome" Neal Martin
