Côte de Beaune
Volnay is one of the Côte de Beaune’s most famous “Villages” appellations. It is located immediately south of Pommard. This appellation features Middle Jurassic brown clay limestone soils that yield soft, elegant wines that are considered to be very feminineac.
This wine’s elegant, ethereal nose features fruity aromas that will develop over the years into aromas of mild spice with just a touch of cinnamon. Soft and elegant on the palate, almost feminine, this wine is endowed with lovely structure, good volume and an intensely long, fruity finish.
An accompaniment to roasted meats, full-flavoured meat dishes, feathered game, or cheeses such as Brie, Chaource or Reblochon.
