About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2018 Volnay Vendanges Selectionnées brings more richness as well as texture, offering beautiful black cherry and darker raspberry fruits as well as lots of spice box, forest floor, violets, flowers, and even a hint of orange tea. It's beautiful on the palate as well and has a pure, focused texture, plenty of mid-palate depth, bright yet integrated acidity, and a great finish. For the value hunters out there, this is well worth snatching up!
