The domain tells you about it: 

High perched, Volnay fully dominates the situation. Some days you can see as far as Mont Blanc. This fullness can be found in the wine of the village. A very Burgundian village that comes in at the shoulder to offer all its comfort to the vine. As early as 1816, André Jullien wrote in his famous Topographie de tous les vignobles connus: "Volnay produces the lightest, finest and most pleasant wine of the Côte de Beaune", still marvelling at its "charming bouquet". Bossuet, this brilliant figure of the Church only allowed Volnay at her table. He saw in it "courage, strength, joy, spiritual intoxication, the transport of the soul". On the eve of his death, he brought six pieces of Volnay to the bishopric of Meaux "so that nothing would be missing from his funeral home". Could one imagine a more Burgundian gesture?

As Courtépée and Béguillet said in the 18th century, if the former Dukes of Burgundy, the Knights of Malta, the monks of Maizières and our former kings liked Volnay so much, it was because they enjoyed "the very varied view, the good air you breathe there, the excellence of the wines and waters of the country". In ancient times, Volnay was for a long time known as the "Vin de primeur" or straw wine. A short stay in vats, press, cask, then the juice of these white grapes went into the cellar. From the beginning of the 19th century, red replaced this white partridge-eye because here we discover the most ardent sensuality of the red and frank pinot noir. The ancients imagined the soul of Volnay forged on an ancient volcano. If this hypothesis is nowadays rejected by geology, it is true that the impulses and passions of this wine have something feminine about them. How do we recognize it? It leaves on the Côte de Beaune like the imprint of a kiss.
