92Vinous / IWC

...develops lovely raspberry, crushed strawberry and orange blossom scents that become very detailed and focused...palate is well balanced with crisp acidity, nice poise and energy, and fine tension building toward a vivacious finish replete with red fruit, blood orange and just a hint of beet.

92Stephen Tanzer

More brooding, medicinal aromas of redcurrant, dark cherry, spices and earth, complicated by sexy pepper and floral notes that do not come from stems... Broad, rich, spicy and deep; this plump yet vinous wine conveys the compelling sweetness of the year with perfectly integrated acidity. Finishes very long and spicy, with horizontal, mouthcoating tannins and palate-saturating sweet and savory elements.

17+ Jancis Robinson

Herbal and redcurrant character. Wonderfully punchy nose – angular acid, but with enough fruit ripeness and tannin to balance. Chewy finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Volnay, Les Fremiets

Volnay is a small appellation with just 904 vineyard acres and a town of fewer than 500 residents. Nevertheless, to Burgundy enthusiasts, it's a jewel. Clive Coates calls Volnay “one of the most delightful wines and one of the most rewarding communes in the Côte d’Or.” Robert M. Parker Jr. described Volnay as “the queen of the Côte de Beaune.” Volnay has always been appealing. In the 13th and 14th centuries the powerful Dukes of Burgundy acquired land there and built chateaux. The medieval town sits on the hillside above the vineyards and the appellation is restricted to red wines made of Pinot Noir. Though there are no Grands Crus, there are 35 Premiers Crus. Some reviewers say the lighter soil of Volnay, compared with Pommard to the north, makes Volnay wines more delicate and elegant than wines from neighboring appellations. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote that Volnay has a “high-quality level of winemaking…The top Volnays possess an immense, seductive fruitiness and lushness…”


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, 1er (Premier) Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
