Domaine de la Vougeraie "En Bollery – Terres D'En Face" 2008

Gamay|Burgundy, France

We've acquired a rare collection of vintage Côtes de Nuits Gamay from one of the most respected Domaines in Burgundy: Domaine de la Vougeraie, a biodynamically farmed domaine in the north of Burgundy with vineyards in such recognizable appellations as Gevrey-Chambertin, Clos Vougeot, and Echézeaux.​

This beautiful and rare Gamay comes direct from the importer with perfect provenance.

"En Bollery" is a small "lieu dit" (a "named site") situated in the commune of Flagey-Echézeaux, the home of the noble Echézeaux and Grands Echézeaux Grand Cru vineyards with a direct view of the Grand Cru Clos Vougeot. If this were Pinot Noir and not Gamay, it would essentially be twice the price and labelled as such.

Valued as much for its scarcity as its age, it's a lighter, brighter Gamay with smoky minerals, tart cranberry, pencil shavings, and wild red fruits. Decanting brings out the best in this; exploring the aromas as it unfurls is almost as fun as drinking it. A gamey, forest floor note suggests a perfect pairing of roasted quail with walnut-pomegranate glaze.

Collectors, Gamay enthusiasts, Francophile wine lovers – all are welcome!
