Quick Overview

Volnay has always been thought of as the most feminine of burgundies. The color varies from bright ruby to a light garnet. Its aromas are of violet, gooseberry, cherry, and - with age - spices, game and cooked prune. It has an immediate appeal which, added to a slight natural precocity, means it can be fully open while still relatively young. The attack is fresh, the finish is warm

DOMAINE MOILLARD VOLNAY 1ER CRU CLOS DES CHENES 2013

The History


The Moillard family has been cultivating vines in Nuits-Saint-Georges since the French Revolution. The arrival of the railway in Nuits-Saint-Georges opened up new commercial opportunities and the Maison Moillard began its activity as wine merchants in 1850.


In 1870, Symphorien Moillard’s son died while serving with the French Army in Algeria. His sister, Jeanne Moillard, took over the family trade and continued the tradition of the Maison Moillard.


In 1873, she married Maurice Thomas, himself an owner of Burgundy vineyards.


From generation to generation, the Thomas family extended the properties, buying up precious plots and developing the trade.


In 2008, Vincent Sauvestre succeeded the Thomas family in running the Maison Moillard and perpetuating its prestigious reputation as one of the finest winemakers in Burgundy.


The Grape


100% Pinot Noir

Food Pairing


 


Sophisticated poultry dishes, patiently roasted and glazed, feathered game, stewed or slowly braised, or simply roasted. it might accompany a couscous or a tajine with meat or poultry or even both. The intensity of Volnay allows it to blend with distinctly flavoured cheeses.

Awards


90/2017+ BURGHOUND.COM


A ripe and perfumed nose of restrained red and blue pinot fruit is nuanced by hints of earth and floral notes. There is good richness and volume to the focused and relatively tight medium weight flavors that possess fine if not truly special depth and length. I do however like the delivery as the style is quite pure and impeccably well-balanced.
