Volnay bottle

This wine comes from two plots from two neighboring climats, covering 1.5 hectares and with a great deal in common. Facing south-southeast, they are drenched in sunshine and have such prestigious neighbors as Taille Pieds and Cailleret. This side of Volnay is close by Monthélie and Meursault, and is where the line of the Côte takes a turn from east-facing to southeast.

An elegant, subdued red, offering black cherry, black currant, violet and sweet spices. Gaining depth from smoke and mineral hints, this is balanced and fades gracefully on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2032. - Bruce Sanderson
