Volnay “Les Santenots” is technically located in the village of Meursault, though vignerons discovered long ago that there is a larger demand for Volnay than Meursault Rouge, and wisely arranged to label reds from their northernmost vineyards as Volnay.
This is Rougeot’s most structured, powerhouse wine that will age gracefully for decades. With an hour or two to open up, the wine becomes feminine and soft with smooth tannins and flavors of crunchy red and black fruit, dried purple flower, dried herbs, leather and baking spices. This wine spent 18 months in barrel, 35% new.
Organic/biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no added sulfur, unfined & unfiltered.
Pair with Brie/Camembert, roasted duck, or Risotto With Mascarpone and Prosciutto.
