The finest and most elegant red wines of the Cote de Beaune are grown in Volnay, a village that is often compared to Chambolle Musigny for the high chalk in the soil and comparatively low clay content. Whereas in earlier times Volnay was made in a particularly light, early drinking style, these days there are many wines that will age extremely well. There are a large number of very fine and dedicated growers in the village, and the wines they produce are the epitome of elegance and delicacy, the most fragrant and seductively feminine expression of Pinot Noir, with an emphasis on persistence rather than power..
