This is Rougeot’s most structured, powerhouse wine that will age gracefully for decades. This wine spent 18 months in barrel (35% new). Produced using organic/biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no added sulfur, and bottled unfined / unfiltered.
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.
40% Pinot Meunier, 35% Chardonnay & 25% Pinot Noir from the Vallée de la Marne.
A perfect, traditional Champagne with flavors of apricot, yellow peach, green apple and vanilla. It’s medium bodied with racy acidity, chalky minerality and refined mousse creating a long and lasting finish.
