Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "Mingling notes of plums and cassis with hints of wood smoke, spices, loamy soil and grilled meats, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots is medium to full-bodied, rich and fleshy, with a layered core and a charming, seamless profile. This is very promising." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery:
Part of the fifth generation, Nicolas joined the family estate in 1994. After a few experiences in the four corners of France and South Africa, he created his own Domaine in 1997. Today, both Domaines are merged, representing 17 hectares and more than thirty appellations. Nicolas believes that the future of wine lies in innovation rather than sticking to the rules of the past. The vineyard is managed sustainably and also takes into account the lunar influence both for the work of the vine and for the development and ageing of the wines.
