Jacques Prieur Volnay Champans Premier Cru Bouteille
  • Free Text

    2006: Beautiful, very classic vintage with a heatwave in the month of July. Very great year for white wines - these are rich and opulent. Lovely vintage producing delicious red wines that are extremely enjoyables as of now.

  • Grape Variety & Plot size

    Grape variety: 100% Pinot Noir on a 0.35 hectare plot

  • Terroir

    The wine of Volnay are famous for their great finesse. The name of the climat "Les Champans" is derived the fact that this plot is fairly steep - which means good sun exposure and thus good ripening.
    The soil has more clay than limestone, and produces firm wines with silky tannin.

  • Vinification & Ageing

    The grapes were handpicked into small crates, then sorted and totally destemmed. The wine stayed on the skins for 16 days in temperature-controlled open oak vats. Pigeage (punching down the cap) was done twice a day during alcoholic fermentation.
    100% malolactic fermentation
    100% ageing in oak barrels
    Duration of ageing: 16 months.

  • Tasting Notes

    Tasted in 2008 (after bottling)
    COLOUR: Dark ruby-red
    BOUQUET: Aromas of toast and warm fresh bread with smoky nuances
    PALATE: Black fruit (black cherry), spice (nutmeg, pepper) and liquorice
    Very beautiful, elegant, bright tannin
