ESTATE HISTORY

Since 1994, the Aegerter Family has been cultivating and vinifying more than 10 hectares of land. The Domain conjure innovation and respect for traditions. Our signature: precise and elegant wines.

TERROIR

Appellation of the Côte de Beaune, the Volnay produces exclusively red wines.
Nestled in the hollow of the hills, Volnay is presented as the most feminine of Burgundy wines.
Soil: Limestone 

VITICULTURE
           
Sustainable farming.   Respect for the vine and its environment thanks to demanding specifications. The Domaine is converting to certified organic farming.
          

WINEMAKING
During the harvest grapes are cut, sorted by hand, destemmed and then placed from 2 to 4 days in steel vats for maceration.
Ageing takes place in oak barrels, 20% of which are new for 8 to 12 months.

TASTING & FOOD PAIRINGS

A magnificent garnet color with ruby reflections.
The nose reveals notes of black fruits as well as some very delicate floral nuances (violet, rose). Lightly toasted notes like coffee add character and depth.
In the mouth, a very beautiful harmony. An underlying freshness supports the wine and brings a committed finish with intense tannins that bring depth.

Suggested food pairings: With this profile of pulpy red wine, a nice fish with texture and a little flesh, all embellished with red fruits to get the gluttony of this wine. Imagine a monkfish just braised in gravy accompanied by red currants in butter to bring just the right acidity, or a rabbit simmered in a casserole dish with reduced juice and grilled carrot tops.

Service temperature: between 14°C and 15°C Ageing potential: to drink within 5 years.
