Volnay combines breeding with nobility, delicacy, elegance and feminity. A delicate violet and berry fragrance. One of the finest representatives of the Côte de Beaune. The Volnay is in the Côte de Beaune what the Chambolle Musigny is in the Côte de Nuits. A feminine wine which is one of the only Burgundy Pinot Noir you can already enjoy and drink when young.

AGE OF THE VINE
65 years
GEOLOGY
Grapes come from the vineyards from the village of Volnay in the Côte de Beaune, and especially from "Les Lurets” and "La Gigotte” vineyards, at the bottom of Volnay. Soil: clay and limestone. Gentle slope. Grapes variety: 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).
VINIFICATION
Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table), then partially destemmed (a third sorted out can be done if necessary with our optical machine). Afterwards put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts we have in the grape berries around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) and crushing are very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing.
AGEING
The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (15% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar ("fruit day”) for the bottling without fining and filtering.
