However Volnay is a village close to Pommard,
its wines are considered as the Finest and smartest of the Côte
d'Or. These "Fremiets" are the most perfect example of
this reputation. They are full of delicacy, very aromatic, even
when young, and very well assimilate the tannins from oak with
the concentration of a Premier Cru. Although their ageing potentiality
is less than for the Pommard, the Volnay "Fremiets" will
keep at least 6 to 8 years.

or mules !
| "Volnay" is
a blend of wines from four different plots, from vines both young
and old. These are very fine, expressive wines, very pleasant
when young, as they release exceptionally intense aromas. With
their softer tannins, the Volnays will keep for four to five
