Vinous Reverie Notes
Domaine extends to about 9 hectares; there’s a little in Monthelie and Pommard but they are focused on Volnay. It’s a very nice collection of vines that the domaine owns in Volnay; 3.5 hectares of villages-rated vines, mainly at the bottom of the hill plus a small parcel from the top. Their selection of premier crus including 0.31 hectares of Clos des Chenes, 0.24 hectares of Champans, 0.39 hectares of Robardelles, 0.13 hectares of Ronceret and 0.09 hectares of Santenots Blanc – but it’s red! The bulk of the domaine’s sales are to individual purchasers, either personal visitors or sales through salons – that accounts for about 70% of production. Pascal describes their export activities as “Small – closer to cases than pallets.” Tasting Notes: Dark red fruit, with a certain weight. An impression of minerality, wide, much finer texture than the villages, really not a wine of fat, rather of muscle and a super width of clean flavor heading into a finish that narrows but also adds a floral distinction.
