Vineyards situation : Volnay lies roughly in the centre of the Côte de Beaune, bordered by Pommard to the Northeast, Monthélie to the West and Meursault to the South. The south-easterly exposed vineyards produce only red wines and 26 Premiers Crus.

Characteristics : The soil is extremely thin, chalky, high in calcium and yield the lightest most delicate wines. The strip below, where most of the Premiers Crus are located, is much lower in chalk with a thin iron rich layer covering a strong subsoil.

Wine making : The fermentation takes place in tank for 3-4 weeks, after which they are aged in barrel for 12-15 months before being bottled.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : This is a fruity wine with vanilla and violet aromas, a young Volnay will be perfect with roast meats and poultry. In great vintages this wine will be very good with richer red meat dishes. With mellow cheeses like Brie, Chaource or Reblochon, drink an old vintage.

Preservation : This wine will age for 8-12 years in a good cellar
