Winemaker's Notes

The wine has a gorgeous ruby like colour. Among the aromas, all subtle and elegant, it is the violet, which has made this wine so famous. There are of course others, just as charming: rose petals and wild strawberries (fraises des bois) are perceptible and contribute to the overall finesse. These same impressions are carried through on the palate where they mingle with a velvety softness and refined tannins. To the taster, it comes as no surprise that the aftertaste of the wine is particularly long, flowery and fruity.

In Burgundy, fowl and white meats are the choice accompaniment for Clos des Chênes: chicken, veal, hare. The cheeses should be on the mild side.

Graceful and flavourful, Volnay-Clos des Chênes is certainly one of the most charming Burgundy wines.
