Volnay lies roughly in the center of the Côte de Beaune, bordered by Pommard to the Northeast, Monthélie to the West and Meursault to the South. The southeasterly exposed vineyards produce only red wines and 26 Premiers Crus. Crowned by a limestone plateau, the Volnay vineyards have a sub soil composed of Argovien marlstone and in its bordering parts of Pommard and Meursault, a Bathonien clay and limestone scree. The altitude varies between 230 and 370 meters above sea level. The fermentation takes place in tank for 3 – 4 weeks, after which they are aged in barrel for an average of 12 months before being bottled.

Tasting Note

The Volnay wines combine distinction, nobility, finesse and femininity. They offer an incomparable bouquet of red berries, violets and vanilla.

Food Pairing

Elegant, full and generous, Volnay will happily accompany the finest meals like roast meat and poultry. With mellow cheeses like Brie, Chaource or Reblochon, drink an old vintage.
