This Volnay 1er Cru Santenots 2017 was born from Pinot Noir grapes grown in vineyards located in their properties in the town of Volnay. It offers typical hints of the denomination in which it grows and it's supported by a great elegance through it's a wine called "Village". To the mouth it feels a solid body, while remaining well aware of the female component of the wines of Sylvie Esmonin all played on elegance and sharpness of the fruit. Savory and " iron" finish.

wine description

It comes from Pinot Noir grapes grown and grown in the Vecchie Vigne owned located in the Municipality of Volnay; in the vineyard a natural and little interventionist viticulture is practiced. The soils are of a very draining mixed type with the presence of clay mixed with fossils (oysters and sea lilies) and the area enjoys excellent and if not high ventilation especially in summer evenings. The harvest is manual and allows the harvest of perfectly healthy and well ripe grapes; in the cellar the fermentation is activated only by indigenous yeasts with the vinification that involves the use of two thirds of grapes not destemmed. Aging takes place in 80% new wood for 18 months.


Winter 2016-17 is consistent with our continental climate with its alternations of freezing and thawing that allow the earth to decompose and eliminate some microorganisms. Spring is very early with very mild temperatures in March which favor an accelerated growth of the vines. However, temperatures cooled in April 2017 and, a year and a day after the terrible frost of April 27, 2016, a new period of frost was on the horizon. The mobilization of the winemakers is exceptional and everyone is present in the vineyards before dawn to light fires of straw, whose smoke shields and prevents the first rays of sun from burning the young shoots. Flowering is early and rapid at the end of May. For a long time, a hot and sunny summer occurs with regular rains that allow the vines to continue their development. A final heat wave occurs at the end of August and causes an acceleration of maturity
