In a nutshell:
A beautifully silky and generously flavoured Côte de Beaune Burgundy.
Laurent Pillot, who has been running this domaine for a number of years, is keen on keeping yields low and cultivating his vines as organically as possible which is an approach which pays dividends across his range of wines. This, his village level Volnay, is made from 5 parcels of vines, two of which, Ronceret and Brouillards are Premier Cru, but being too small in size he assembles it into the one cuvée. The wine is really expressive and juicily ripe; it has a good weight, first class minerality and sweet oak spice.
When to drink:
Elegant and velvety it's well inside its drinking range and will stay on top form until the early 2020s.
