Aegerter Volnay

Aegerter Volnay

$84.99

Bright ruby in colour, its flavours sing violet, redcurrant, cherry and, with age, spices, game and stewed prune. Its concentration and its complexity is expressed in a delicate, balanced manner. Added to its frankness of taste is a precocity, which enables it to be opened fairly early. A fresh first impression, warm to finish, it is reminiscent of biting into the fruit and breathing in its flesh.

About Product

A Few Words About The Appellation

A Côte de Beaune appellation, Volnay solely produces red wine. It has always been appreciated for its finesse, its vigour and its bouquet and as such the Volnay is often presented as the most feminine red Burgundy.

100% Pinot Noir

Following the manual harvest, the grapes are placed in a stainless steel vat for 2 to 4 days for maceration before fermentation. Next, the alcoholic fermentation is triggered thanks to the use of a single starter culture. Malolactic fermentation and maturing is done in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months.

Bright ruby in colour, its flavours sing violet, redcurrant, cherry and, with age, spices, game and stewed prune. Its concentration and its complexity is expressed in a delicate, balanced manner. Added to its frankness of taste is a precocity, which enables it to be opened fairly early. A fresh first impression, warm to finish, it is reminiscent of biting into the fruit and breathing in its flesh.

This Volnay is perfectly suited to sophisticated slow-roasted or glazed poultry dishes. Better still, it adds interest to simply roasted or stewed game. It also works well with a good couscous or meat tajine. Its intensity also enables it to blend with the strong flavours of cheese.

Serve at a temperature of 14 to 16°C. Delicious young, its flavour will fully open up with time (around 10 years).
