TASTING NOTES
Volnay combines breeding with nobility, delicacy, elegance, and feminity. A delicate violet and berry fragrance. One of the finest representatives of the Côte de Beaune. The Volnay is in the Côte de Beaune what the Chambolle-Musigny is in the Côte de Nuits. A feminine wine which is one of the only Burgundy Pinot Noir you can already enjoy and drink when young.

FOOD PAIRING 
Roasted meats and various cheeses.

PRODUCER
The history of Maison Vincent Girardin is relatively recent. In 1980, at the age of 19, Vincent Girardin, the son of a family of winegrowers based in Santenay since the 17thcentury, decided to strike out on his own and began producing wine from five acres of vines that he had inherited from his parents. From his earliest youth, Vincent had a passion for working with vines and great respect for the potential that they represent, and his ambition was to produce his own wine. The quality of his wines was quickly recognized by connoisseurs all over the world, and this enabled him to expand his activity, focusing primarily on the great white and red wines of the Côte de Beaune. To cope with the growing demand for his wines, he developed an approach that was new in Burgundy: he purchased grapes from producers who shared the same philosophy and the same high standards. In 2012, Vincent Girardin sold his operation to a long-standing partner of the Maison. Jean-Pierre Nié, President of the Compagnie des Vins d’Autrefois in Beaune, naturally decided to continue with the small team of nine people that had been faithful to the Maison for many years. Today, Eric Germain continues to uphold the style of the wines, and Marco Caschera markets them all over the world.

VINEYARD
Grapes come from the vineyards of the village of Volnay in the Côte de Beaune, especially from "Les Lurets” and "La Gigotte” vineyards, at the bottom of Volnay. 
Soil: clay and limestone. Gentle slope.
Grapes Variety: 100% Pinot Noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

WINERY 
Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table), then partially destemmed (a third sorting can be done if necessary with our optical machine). Afterwards put in stainless steel thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts we have in the grape berries and last around three weeks. Pumping-over (the must) and crushing are very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and in order to get the purest and most representative wine we can. Soft pressing.

The wine is put into the cask further to a soft settling of the juice in French oak (15% new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural anaerobic bacterium from the juice. The aging lasts 14 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar ("fruit day”) for the bottling without fining and filtering.
