Charming, the Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes shows an intense and bright ruby colour. On the nose, the typical aromas of violet dominate, followed by delicate notes of rose jam and wild berries. The palate is structured by fine tannins and ends in a fruity, floral and persisting finish.

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 4****Stars (The producers of very high-quality wines, those who are the glory of the French vineyard)

About the vineyard : This great historic home of Beaune is driven by the Jousset-Drouhin family, with complicity to the vinification of its technical director, Jérôme Faure-Brac. Enormous efforts of own viticulture, of inspiration biodynamic, have transformed the fruits of the field and explain the supplement of maturity of red and white wines. Without renouncing to elegance or the fruity very pure characteristics of house style, wines won them density of material, in a brilliant set that ranges from Chablis to Macon of course by the Gold Coast where all the mythical home, Musigny, Montrachet wines are produced and of course the famous Beaune-clos-des-Mouches.

Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 2**Étoiles (Ces très grands domaines, souvent dotés de terroirs fabuleux, sont des incontournables qui, par leur régularité et l'excellence de leur production, se doivent de figurer dans la cave des amateurs avertis)

About the vineyard : In recent years, this beautiful home is headed by Frédéric Drouhin, assisted by his sister Véronique for wines and his brother Philippe in the vines. Since July 2013, she opened a wine bar in the heart of Beaune. It has found its cruising speed and is becoming a safe value. It relies on a biodynamic vineyard particularly well provided in great whites - Côte de Beaune but Chablis - including the famous Clos des Mouches. The style has always been focused on the finesse and elegance, but wines have much gained in depth of constitution in recent years.
