Maison Champy Volnay

AOC Volnay, Burgundy

Perched high above the Côte de Beaune, the village of Volnay is built up against the small mountain of Chaignot, between Pommard and Meursault. The vines are oriented to the east and south-east, at an altitude comprised between 230 and 280 meters above sea level. Volnay does not produce any Grands Crus, but its Premiers crus, of which there are 30, are unmatched. Appreciated for its lovely bouquet and finesse, Volnay is often presented as a feminine wine.

Tasting Notes

Lively ruby color with light garnet reflections.  In the nose, its femininity goes hand in hand with a strong aromatic intensity, on notes of small red and black fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry), violets, and mild spices.  Fresh on the palate, broad and round with a gourmet and velvety finish.

It will go very well with fine dishes, poultry and white meats in a cream sauce: blanquette de veau, chicken with morel mushrooms, sweetbread of veal à la Normande, fillet of quail… and with relatively soft, mild cheeses such as Brillat-Savarin, Mont d'Or, Cîteaux.

Cold maceration. Fermentation of natural yeasts in barrels for 3 weeks. Ageing in barrels, of which 30% are new, for 14 months.

100% Pinot Noir
