Behind its ruby and purple-tinted color, our Volnay Premier Cru 2018 displays a nose with aromas of red fruits, fresh rose, and deliciously peppery brambles. The palate is fresh and juicy, with tannins that are at once tight and velvety. The finish, lightly saline, shows great length and fades slowly with a touch of graphite.
Now to 20 years
An elegant blend of limestone, calcareous scree, and clay-rich soils, the climat “Carelle-sous-la-Chapelle”, located mid-slope on the hill of Chaignot, creates our Volnay Premier Cru, a finely balanced and delicate Pinot Noir. Located just south of our hometown of Pommard, the village of Volnay has been renowned since the 18th century.
