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.

"Dark fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant mark this dense red. There is a touch of earth too, in this meaty version. It's chunky, with chalky tannins lining the finish. Best from 2023 through 2035. 50 cases imported."
