All Vintages of this wine
The Volnay Champans Premier Crus 2011 from Domaine Jacques Prieur is from a steep plot in the finages de Volnay, favored with lovely sunshine that guarantees the maturity of the grapes. More clay than limestone, the soils produce wine with firm, silky tannins. The Domaine Jacques Prieur 2011 Premier Crus Volnay Champans is 100% Pinot Noir ages in oak barrels for 22 months. This wine has a beautiful and somber ruby-red robe. The aromatic bouquet is fine with strong notes of black cherry, dark chocolate and spices. One can sense the lovely evolution of soft florals - violet and peony. The delicious taste is defined by toasty and fruity notes and a beautiful mid-palate texture. The finish is achieved with fresh and dense tannins.
