Background

The parcel is located south of the village of Volnay, near Pommard, next to the famous “Clos des Ducs”. The terrain is on a very deep slope (40 metres elevation) which accounts for the fact that the rock at the top of the parcel (marly limestone) is different from the rock at the bottom (hard limestone). The soil is fairly cold and made up of clay and heavy, rich, deep limestone. "Pitures" is the most robust of the domaine's Volnays, more Pommard in character. It is similar to Pommard because it is fairly opulent, while retaining the finesse of a Volnay.

Tasting Notes

Intense red colour. A touch of oak on the nose, with aromas of slightly candied red fruit and violets. This is a powerful, rich and well balanced wine. The tannins are fairly pronounced when the wine is young and soften with age. Very good length.
