More info

The Pinot Noir vines were planted in 1936 and are low yielding, producing a rich, concentrated style of Volnay. Grown in the Premier Cru named plot of Clos des Chênes in Volnay, the vines are cultivated according to "la lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agricultural methods and reducing the amount of chemicals, in order to respect the land and its environment. The soils are predominantly limestone and clay.

The grapes were meticulously sorted to ensure only the highest quality fruit was vinified. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks and the wine was transferred into French oak casks, of which 25% were new, with bâtonnage of the fine lees adding complexity and texture until the completion of malolactic conversion. Racked after 10 months in barrel, the wine was gently fined and filtered prior to being estate bottled by gravity.
