Volnay lies roughly in the centre of the Côte de Beaune, bordered by Pommard to the northeast, Monthélie to the west and Meursault to the south. The south-easterly exposed vineyards produce only red wines with 26 Premier Crus. The thin, chalky soil has a high calcium content and yields the lightest most delicate wines. The strip below, where most of the Premier Crus are located, is much lower in chalk with a thin iron rich layer covering a more dense subsoil.
A powerful, elegant wine with concentrated red fruit flavours and vanilla and violet aromas.
