This village wine has an inviting floral and gently spicy nose. It’s a blend of two parcels: the evocatively named Les Famine, whose paucity of soil makes the roots dig deep; and a small dash of a tiny premier cru, La Gigotte, which is nestled just beneath the larger and more renowned Mitans cru, and lifts this village wine up a notch. Grapes from both parcels were entirely destemmed, and the wine has a chewy, sapid, fruity, and accessible profile, with nicely grippy tannins. It’s a Volnay full of up front joy.
The 2020 Volnay Village comes from two climats and is 100% de-stemmed. Tightly-wound on the nose, it offers cranberry and raspberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, slightly candied in personality with a pastille-like purity on the finish. Very fine.
