Hailing from Côte de Beaune and home to some of the most beautiful Burgundian houses in the region.
Volnay is known for the feminine touch that it brings to Pinot Noir. The wines are renowned for their soft, elegant mouthfeel, balanced structure, intense fruit flavour and a long finish.

Volnay ages well and this will be no exception. Currently bright and elegant with floral, fruity aromas and a hint of cinnamon. This Volnay's fine structure and intense fruit will hold its own when accompanying roasted meats, game and creamy soft cheese, such as Reblochon.

Available to buy as a single bottle
Elegant wines that are considered to be a very feminine style of Burgundian Pinot Noir. Match this with rich, creamy cheeses.

The Producer

The Bichot family settled in the Chateau of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, Burgundy in 1350. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe, or biche in French. Their wine heritage started in 1831 with Bernard who was a wine trader. It was his son, Hippolyte, who brought the first vines in Volnay and grandson, Albert, who rooted the Bichot name in Beaune from which the family business escalated. Since 1996 Bichot has been under Albéric Bichot who is completely focused on developing the future of the company without compromising family tradition or quality.

The Region

Burgundy's Côte de Beaune is the southern half of the famous Côte d'Or, perhaps the world's most famous wine growing slopes, south of the town of Beaune. Volnay is one of the Côte de Beaune's most famous "Villages" appellations. It's located immediately south of Pommard where the most powerful Pinot Noir is produced. However. the soils of Volnay are brown clay limestone that yields soft, elegant wines. Hence it is considered to be a more feminine appellation.

Tartiflette

The rich combination of potato, cheese, bacon and garlic could stop anyone in their tracks so pick ripe reds with good acidity or structured whites which will both cut through the delicious stodge! This recipe is just what the Albert Bichot Volnay was made for.

Roast Lamb With Herb Butter

Lamb is a classic match for reds with balanced tannins and cedary flavours. This elegant, spicy, intense Volnay from Côte de Beaune will perfectly match this simple, easy roast.

Frikkadels: South African Meatballs

These South African spiced meatballs are an easy pairing for red wines - the beef and pork combination will suit most medium-bodied reds with a hint of oak ageing and good structure. Punt for Burgundian reds for the right combination of soft fruit and structure.
