Volnay, Ez Blanche

Volnay, Ez Blanche

This unique plot benefits from a southeast exposure and is among the highest in the appellation, just below the treeline south of the village. The distinguishing characteristic is in its white-pepper ashen soil composed of sandy marls and among the highest levels of limestone for Volnay. If there were an appellation for Chardonnay in this village, it would certainly be here. The result is an original wine with fine structure, pure red fruit and white pepper spice. The vines are more than 50 years old. Approximately 25% new barrels used during aging.
