2017 Volnay Premier Cru Les Mitans
Volnay is famous for the deeply-coloured red wines made from Pinot Noir here.
Les Mitans is a “climat” which means middle or centre because this small plot lies near the centre of the Volnay commune at an elevation of 250 metres on a south-east facing slope on the same side of the village as the venerable Clos des Chênes climat. The soil here is quite deep and is strewn with limestone pebbles. This wine is a wonderful example of a Volnay Premier Cru with great structure, vivacity and length, as you would expect from one of Fanny’s wines from such revered terroir.
