Volnay Clos des Chênes 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. The soil of the Premier Cru is thin, chalky and high in calcium, for light, delicate wines compared to most of the Premiers Crus, whose soil is lower in chalk. The Pinot Noir grapes are fermented in wooden vats for up to 4 weeks, and then the wines are matured in oak barrels for 15 to 18 months before bottling.
