The Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes 2017 is an exceptional example of ‘elegant Volnay’ at it’s best. This wine is succulent and the tannins are soft. This vintage represents how Gaunoux wines can last a long time if cellared correctly. It still has a long way to go, and can be kept for years to come.
The village of Volnay is located on the hillside, in the heart of the vineyards and faces East, South-East. The soil contains limestone (more than Pommard) with a subsoil of marl and clay. These elements in the soil create elegant yet powerful wines.
The appellation Clos des Chênes is dark red in colour ; it’s bouquet is rich in red fruit, woody and is a powerful wine yet elegant – perfectly balanced.
When cellared correctly, this wine can last from 20 to 30 years. Once aged, the nose is full of truffle and violet.
