"There is a hint of barnyard character to the more deeply pitched nose of plum, dark cherry and spice, all of which is trimmed in a touch of wood. The middle weight flavors possess a more refined mid-palate texture along with good detail and a subtle minerality on the slightly rustic finale." (BH)

Winery Notes:
Volnay: In their home village, the Bitouzets own 2.2 hectares of vines at the village level. The vines, planted at various stages (1961, 1987, 2003) are principally found in the two neighboring sites of “Ez Echards” and “Les Aussy” which both sit immediately underneath the 1er Cru “Ronceret”. This Volnay has excellent ruby-red color; it is fresh, fruity with exuberant red berry fruit that spreads on the palate; and, it is lightly tannic in the finish to let one know this is from Volnay.
