Appelation

Volnay 1er Cru

Variety

Pinot Noir

Volnay 'Santenots' is technically located in the village of Meursault, though vignerons discovered long ago that there is a larger demand for Volnay than Meursault Rouge, and therefore wisely arranged to label reds from their northernmost vineyards as Volnay. This is Rougeot's most structured, powerhouse of a wine that will age gracefully for decades.
