CÔTE DE BEAUNE
With its delicate nose marked by aromas of peony, strawberry and dried rose, our Volnay reveals a distinctly feminine profile. The palate unveils notes of black fruit jam and sweet spices. The tannins are silky and savory. Its pronounced intensity and long finish make this a Pinot Noir perfect for aging, one which will evolve gracefully over the next 15 years.
The pebble-rich and limestone soils of Volnay, rising between 230 and 280 meters above sea level, makes for a delicate, aromatic, and elegant Pinot Noir revealing the feminine profile of the appellation. Cultivated since the Middle Ages, the vineyard located on the steep slopes of the hill of Chaignot has always been a perfect fit for Burgundy’s native red grape variety.
