Appellation: Volnay 1er Cru Contrôlée
Volnay is located in the Côte de Beaune. Clos des Chènes is one of the best known Premier Crus of the region located near the top of the Volnay Slope, facing due east. Soils here are predominantly limestone based and quite rocky.
100% Pinot Noir
Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the winery, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place for 20 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature, with punching down. Wine is aged in French oak barrels, 40% of which are new.
Beautiful deep ruby in color.
On the nose, the wine is full of aromas of small red fruits.
Racy, with a nice length in the mouth, this wine has great richness.
