Daniel Bouland is a not a new name, especially if you are familiar with the Beaujolais region. His eponymous domaine lies in the hamlet of Corcelette in Francem, and some of his vines are nearly a hundred years old. His terroirs are exceptional and diverse, planted on Vialla rootstock, on steep slopes. Despite his quality wine, and his wealth of experience, Bouland is a quiet vigneron that keeps mostly to himself and to his vines. He is humble, discreet, but incredibly hardworking, ensuring all of the grapes that grow in his domaine are cared for, and each bottle of wine is to a standard he upholds.
