With Marie Delaby-Génot, daughter of Marie and Charles-Henri, and her husband Pierre-André Delaby, the second generation of domaine owners concentrated on the quest for ever more exceptional terroirs. Domaine Genot-Boulanger expanded into the Cote de Nuits in 1995 and, thanks to its new acquisitions, began producing three Grand Crus: Clos de Vougeot, Corton-Charlemagne, and Corton "Les Combes."
The nose is spicier than that of Pommard, with immediately notes of cloves and peppers that intermingle in the nuances of wild berries. The fruit gradually emerges from aeration.
The flavor corresponds to the aromas: the wine is nicely full-bodied, with a crunchy tannin grain and a frank vitality, it is the energy of Volnay which speaks and the wine is both built and removed: molto vivace, as the say musicians - it will set the right tempo for the best roast poultry.
