Bitouzet Volnay Dozen Header

A mixed dozen to tantalize the taste buds!

 

Inside Burgundy by Jasper Morris features an excellent quote from 1666. It is attributed to the Intendent Bouchu, the Royal Agent with responsibility for Burgundy 'Volnay est un pays de montagne, implante de vignes, ou il croit le meilleur vin de Bourgogne' (Volnay is mountain country, planted with vines, where it is thought the best wine of Burgundy grows).

 

Today the wines of Volnay, whilst perhaps not considered the best of all Burgundy, have an extremely strong following and it would be fair to say they are the most desirable (and delicious) wines of the Cote de Beaune.

 

The reason is their perfumed, almost delicate character with a beguiling intensity of flavour and long finish. In many ways they are reminiscent of some of the great communes of the Cote de Nuits. And let us not forget just how well they age.

 

Bitouzet Chenes new We have a fine selection of Volnay in our portfolio, none better than the wines of Bitouzet-Prieur.

 

Founded in 1860 this domaine is a Volnay specialist with a range of sites throughout the commune.

 

Many of you will be acquainted with their wines. For those who are not and would like to discover Volnay or for those who are already fans and would like to add some more to the cellar, we have assembled a new Tasting Pack.
