    Volnay is a village and appellation that stands just south from Pommard and Beaune. Volnay is very distinctive from its neighbouring appellation for its rather fruity and gentle body, and is well recognized to be one of the most elegant wine and appellation in Burgundy.

  • Vineyard

    Clos des Angles" parcel, located at the border with Pommard appellation, refers to its "angles" as it is indeed a triangle shaped parcel. This parcels have a gentle slope and is benefiting from an eastern exposure with an elevation of 250m. The soil, having a high proportion of small gravels and clay, is gifting us with very nice grape ripeness year after year. All what precedes is making this parcel a genuine gem within the Volnay appellation.

  • Characteristic

    After the challenges thrown with the vintage 2012, we were hoping for a peaceful 2013.But capricious Mother Nature had other ideas. Defying all weather forecasts, she never let up. After a long winter, a gloomy spring and a fine, providential summer, our pickers had to wait until the end of September to take up secateurs.

  • Wine-food pairing

    Sophisticated poultry dishes (patiently roasted and glazed), Couscous or a tajine with meat or poultry, distinctly flavoured cheeses.

  • Tasting note

    The bouquet reveals blackcurrant with a touch of jammy and toasty characteristics. The palate shows subtle and well-integrated tannins. An outstanding red wine with deep intensity and richness. Very elegant and delicate!
