Volnay Santenots-du-Milieu

This is the best part of the Santenots appellation, formerly classified head of cuvée by Dr. Lavalle. In several plots that Jules Lafon (great grandfather of Dominique and founder of the domain) bought successively, it is in all 3.8 ha of vines. Facing east, with very clayey, shallow red soil on a hard limestone subsoil, the site is very sunny and precocious. The average age is over 30 years old, the oldest vines are 60 years old, the youngest 3 years old. The wines are very colourful, rich, deep, with present tannins, but with a beautiful elegance on the finish. Aromas of black fruits dominate: blackberry, blackcurrant, Cherry. More power than in most Volnays, it is a wine for laying down (10 to 20 years).

The youngest vines are used to produce a Volnay village, more tender and more affordable in its youth.
