CÔTE DE BEAUNE

Volnay Premier Cru 2017

TASTING

This Volnay Premier Cru 2017 reveals a medium ruby color. The nose shows intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, blackcurrant, and fruits of the forest along with oak. A good concentration is present on the palate. This Pinot Noir is a structured and balanced red wine with a long finish, that will express all its complexity in a few years as tertiary flavors develop.
