Volnay Clos de la Barre Premier Cru play

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Premiers Crus

Volnay lies near the center of the Côte de Beaune and produces only red wines, with 26 Premiers Crus. In parallel to the way the character of Chambolle-Musigny wines compare to other wines from the Côte de Nuits, wines from the commune of Volnay show the most delicacy, elegance and finesse of wines within the Cote de Beaune. With optimal southeast exposures, the vineyards have soil that is extremely thin and chalky, high in calcium content, producing the lightest, most delicate wines. The strip below, where most of the Premiers Crus are located, has soil with much less chalk and a thin iron-rich layer over firmly structured subsoil.

tasting note

This is an elegant yet fruity wine, with vanilla and violet aromas.

food pairing

When opened young, this wine is perfect with roast meats and poultry. Drink an older vintage with mellow cheeses like Brie, Chaource or Reblochon. In great vintages, this wine will be very good with rich, red meat dishes.
