Volnay 1er Cru les Champans

2018
France
Burgundy

The domain’s largest premier cru holding, a parcel of 4.2 acres whose vines date from 1934, 1971, and 1985. Within the premier cru band, Champans is down slope and has heavier soils, giving its wine more fruit and breadth than other Voillot Volnays.

"Rich and dramatic, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans unwinds in the glass with aromas of berry conserve, dark chocolate, sweet spices and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied, rich and muscular, it's powerful and layered, with what seems to be a somewhat roasted profile that's reminiscent of the 1990 vintage."
