Contrary to the name, the grapes for this Volnay lie within the village of Meursault in the Côte de Beaune, just to the south of the actual village of Volnay. Though best known for its white wines, certain terroirs, such as the Les Santenots vineyard, happen to be better adapted to bringing out all the finesse the Pinot Noir grape has to offer. The soil is comprised of clay and limestone, and the vines are planted on a gentle slope.The 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.
