Lovely bright scarlet in colour with a hint of purple at the rim. Ripe, pure nose with plenty of red and black cherry fruit, blackberries, rhubarb and traces of cream, dried herbs and fresh thyme. Full in the mouth yet well rounded, supple and soft. Really good tannic structure around which the rest of the wine just wraps itself. This is really velvety with a lovely balance of ripe cherry fruit, cream and a trace of vanilla. Delicious and really approachable.
We produced this Volnay from Pinot Noir vines with an average of 40 years, harvested from sites to the east and south-east of the historic village of Volnay. The vines here are planted in light, shallow soils, layered through with ancient crumbling limestone, small stones and traces of clay. Bottled early to preserve its freshness, this is a wine of real elegance, purity and finesse which we really hope that you will enjoy.
