Our Volnay 1er cru cuvée from 2019 onwards represents our 'young vines' from the Volnay 1er cru Taillepieds vineyards. In 2020 we began replanting, by sections, our Volnay 1er cru Clos de la Chapelle monopole vineyard. When those vines begin producing fruit, they will be included in this cuvée.
The young vines Taillepieds contains a higher proportion of limestone and produces a wine of dark color, powerful mid-palate and long finish. The acidity levels are relatively high which adds to its ageability.
