Volnay, Burgundy, France
A dry year has again benefitted this vineyard, whose heavier soils help retain water. It’s located just below Caillerets, and it’s tempting to feel that there’s extra finesse from that proximity. Certainly, there’s weight, and complexity, too; this is a wine whose gravitas creeps up on you. At heart, it’s still a Volnay, with a gentle peony perfume. Drink 2025-2038.
Our wine comes from vines that are between 15 and 50 years old, situated South of Volnay in the climate called Les Lurets. Facing East/South-East and at an altitude of 235 to 240 metres, they are planted in well drained stony soil. Lurets may come from the word larrey stemming from the Latin word latus, which means side of a hill-mountain or slope
