Arnaud Baillot Volnay 2021
Site: Blend of Les Serpens & En vault.
History & tradition: because of the purity of its air, Volnay was apparently the favorite residence of the ladies at the court of the Duke of Burgundy. The other attraction was of course the charm of its wines. Soil: marl and limestone with small pebbles.
TASTING NOTES by Arnaud Baillot
“A wine of great elegance with a vivid and bright colour. When the wine is young, the aromas are reminiscent of violet and black currant. With age, the aromas take on notes of ripe or candied fruit, mushroom and mild spices. On the palate, a pleasant sensation of roundness and velvety texture. Long aftertaste, with touches of candied fruit and vanilla”.
