Louis Jadot Volnay Clos de Barre

 

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 and 26 Premiers Crus.

Characteristics

The soil is extremely thin, chalky, high in calcium and yield the lightest most

delicate wines. The strip below, where most of the Premiers Crus are located, is

much lower in chalk with a thin iron rich layer covering a strong subsoil.

Wine making

The fermentation takes place in tank for 3-4 weeks, after which they are aged in

barrel for 12-15 months before being bottled.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy

This is a fruity wine with vanilla and violet aromas, a young Volnay will be

perfect with roast meats and poultry.

In great vintages this wine will be very good with richer red meat dishes.

With mellow cheeses like Brie, Chaource or Reblochon, drink an old vintage.

Preservation

This wine will age for 8-12 years in a good cellar
