Country: France, Bourgogne, Cote De Beaune
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Wine Advocate: The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets exhibits aromas of raspberries, plums, currant leaf and spices, followed by a medium-bodied palate that`s firmer and spicier than the Volnay Village, with sappy acids and a subtly wood-inflected finish, while retaining a similarly elegant profile.

Food Pairing: Duck, Goose and Game Birds

The Volnay Fremiets are divided into two parcels, one planted in 1950 and the other in 1980. Both border the Pommard appellation, in fact the soil is very similar with a significant concentration of iron oxide. Yet the rock base is more characteristic of Volnay. These wines tend to be delicate and elegant from attack to mid-palate  then quickly gain structure for the finish.

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
