Overview

Château de Meursault, whose history goes back one thousand years, produces the Volnay Clos des Chênes from one parcel of 6.40 Acres located on the upper hill, South of the hamlet of Volnay. “Clos”, meaning “closed”, refers to the walls bordering the vineyard, and “Chênes” to the oak trees that were grown nearby. The white marl soils, humid and rustic, make this Premier Cru very dense and structured.

Aging

Aged for 15 -18 months in 30% new oak barrels and in 1-2 years in oak barrels.

Fermentation

After destalking, the juice is fermented in stainless steel vats for 15-18 days. Cold maceration lasts for 5-6 days, followed by alcoholic fermentation. Gentle cap-punching is performed during this period to obtain complete and perfect maceration.
