Premier Cru Red Burgundy - Pinot Noir. Driving from Pommard to Meursault on the Route de Beaune, the village of Volnay will be on your right. Just past La Chapelle on the left will be Premier Cru vineyard ‘Champans’. It’s quintessential Volnay. Stony with red brown soil that drains well with underlying Oxfordian limestone and marl, results in delicate persistent wines with beautiful faint structure. "A more elegant if distinctly restrained, indeed almost inexpressive nose requires aggressive swirling to coax aromas of various red berries, lavender and soft spice wisps to reveal themselves. The intense, caressing and naturally sweet medium-bodied flavors also display good minerality that adds a sense of lift to the mildly austere finale. While this is sufficiently structured to reward mid-term cellaring, it should be approachable after 5ish years or so." 91 Points Allen Meadows, Burghound.
