This young 20 year old vine is located in Volnay, in the lieu-dit called « les Condemaines » .With a more clayey soil here, this Volnay area is mainly planted in Pinot Noir.
The introduction of a Muscat-like Chardonnay ( a Chardonnay derived from small berries coming from Macon la Roche Vineuse ) was daring but payed off in this rich and deep land.
Trimmed in cordon de Royat,this Chardonnay works much better in this type of soil, and the resulting wines are surprisingly fresh and precise for a generic Bourgogne.
