Chantal Lescure, Volnay 2017Regular price $68.00 Save $-68.00
Variety: Pinot Noir
The Lescure Domaine is among the newer winemaking families, but just as fierce. Chantal Lescure was begun in 1975 by Chantal and her husband Xavier. They claimed 18 hectares of land strewn throughout Chambolle-Musigny in the Cote de Nuits and the Volnay in Cote de Beaune. Today their two sons coordinate the running of the estate and farm from parcels running from Dijon in the north to Meursault in the south. The Domaine takes organic farming very seriously, as they have been practicing full organics since 2000; they're even certified by Ecocert.
This Volnay comes from 50+ year old vines. It spends 18 months in barrel, some of it new. This drinks well now in its youth, though could definitely use more cellar time. Decant prior to drinking to allow this beauty to open up.
