Additional Details edit

Volnay wines are feminine, if only one word shall be used. Evolving throughout red fruits and violet aromas, their roundness makes them very seducing, with soft yet firm tannins. It is a distinguished and elegant wine, known as a great representative of the Côte de Beaune.

"A pretty and more elegant nose mixes liqueur-like aromas of plum with hints of earth and violet. The supple, round and relatively powerful middle weight flavors possess plenty of energy though the firm and clean finish is noticeably rustic."
