Chantal Lescure Volnay 2018 750ml - France Bourgogne


Chantal Lescure Volnay 2018 750ml - France Bourgogne

The Chantal Lescure Volnay is from 50+ year-old vines on sandy clay soils over limestone. Fermentation is with wild yeasts in cuve inox followed by 18 months in barrel, approximately 20% of which are new (500L), bottled without fining or filtration.The wine shows a bright deep red/garnet color with black cherry, blackberry and red currant aromas, quite floral and elegant with complex hints of earth,  brown spice and tea. With aeration, the palate shows a round, velvety, chalky texture backed by firm acidity with violet, plum, cherry and strawberry fruit, mint, bitter chocolate and earth that continue in the long, sappy finish. This is a lovely "village" Volnay that is delicious now, but decant if possible, this will really sing in three to five years and until 2030+.

The grapes are destemmed and fermented in natural yeasts.
