Volnay 1Er Cru Les Roncerets 2014

Volnay 1Er Cru Les Roncerets 2014

Ref: A022714

Domaine Paul Garaudet, Monthélie, Côte d'Or

Classic Burgundian Pinot Noir from one the most traditional of vignerons, full and fruity with lots of red fruit flavours on the palate which is soft and round and with hints of spiciness on the long finish.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir the grapes are harvested at optimum ripeness, completely destemmed, then undergo a cold maceration from between 5 to 8 days.

The alcoholic fermentation occurs naturally with indigenous yeasts present on the coating of grapes. This fermentation is slow and lasts between 20 to 25 days.

The wines are decanted from the vats and barrels filled by gravity in the cellar. The malolactic fermentation is allowed to progress naturally. The wine is matured on the fine lees in the barrel and this lasts from 12 to 18 months. The wine is not fined with only a slight chilling help to clarify it. This method helps to keep the maximum amount of fruit in the wine when it is bottled.

The resulting wines are fragrant, well-balanced and fine and will benefit from bottle ageing (from 5 to 15 years).

The Paul Garaudet domaine produces authentic wines true to the tradition of the great wines of Burgundy . The wines are made in the purest traditional manner in order to respect all facets of the fruit with the aim of reflecting each “terroir” as they are unique and inimitable.

Paul Garaudet believes that perfection doesn’t exist, so the wine estate works tirelessly in order to improve his wines so as to meet his high standards.

Paul Garaudet took charge of this important 15-hectare domaine when he was only eighteen, following the sudden death of his father, Georges, and some of his superb wines are still labelled under his father’s name, although this might well be for tax purposes! There can be no doubt that he had to learn the hard way and, now in his late-thirties, he has carved himself out a reputation as one of the finest red and white wine-makers in the village of Monthélie, a sleepy village in a valley just to the west of Meursault.

Affectionately know as 'Le Grand Paul' by CPW his commitment to producing the very best from his vineyards is second to none.
