Girardin Volnay Vieilles Vignet 750ml
Volnay combines breeding with nobility, delicacy, elegance, and feminity. A delicate violet and berry fragrance. One of the finest representatives of the Côte de Beaune. The Volnay is in the Côte de Beaune what the Chambolle-Musigny is in the Côte de Nuits. A feminine wine which is one of the only Burgundy Pinot Noir you can already enjoy and drink when young.
Pair with roasted meats and various cheeses.
The 2017 Volnay showed beautifully, with the ripe, sexy style of the vintage balanced nicely by plenty of freshness and focus. Lots of darker strawberry and framboise notes as well as spring flowers, wood smoke, spice box, and forest floor notes emerge on the nose, and it’s medium-bodied, has a light, vibrant texture, ripe tannins, a great finish. It shows more structure with time in the glass and is a beautiful, ethereal Volnay that will benefit from 2-4 years of bottle age and drink brilliantly over the following decade.
