Winemaker Notes

True to its varietal nature, Domaine de Villaine Bouzeron is a liveley, fruity wine, but it also has a finesse and roundness that spring from the essential nature of the terroir. These qualities lend it great versatility. To best appreciate the freshness and fruit, our Bouzeron would be drunk young, within two or three years. To allow the wine to fully develop fullness and "fatness", age it for up to ten years.

Critical Acclaim

D 93
Decanter
Blended from 17 parcels spread over nine lieux-dits, each vinified separately. The pressing is very slow and gentle, with the fermentation carried out in large, neutral casks, and the wine is racked after a year in cask on the lees. In ripe vintages like 2019, the slight bitterness of the skin of Aligoté can give complexity and balance to the honeyed note of the fruit. This is a complex, sensual wine.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2019 Bouzeron is a particular success, mingling aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and clear honey with hints of beeswax and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, layered and unusually concentrated, it's a seamless, structured wine, with lively acids and a long, intense finish. Attractive though this is today, I can't wait to see it with a decade or so on the clock. Rating : 91+
