Guillaume and Sarah Glantenay are a young brother and sister team. This family-owned Volnay domaine traces its roots to the 17th century, eight hectares, spread over Volnay, Pommard and Chambolle-Musigny. Guillaume is in charge of viticulture and winemaking, whilst Sarah is a great ambassador for the estate. Viticulture is lutte raisonée, involving ploughing, with no pesticides or herbicides. In the cellar, the grapes are almost all destemmed, then given a short cool maceration, following which fermentation occurs using natural yeasts. Fine, silky tannins are the key here, making for elegant, refined wines which are also age-worthy. 30% new oak
"At 1.10 hectares, Brouillards is the domaine’s largest premier cru holding and is essentially the flagship. It is on the Pommard side of the village, to the north of Mitans and across the road from Les Angles. The nose is darkly-fruited, with bitter cherry and smoky minerality.
On the palate, the domaine’s trademark supple red berry fruit makes for excellent approachability, whilst incisive, staccato tannins provide definition. Fine earthy minerality persists through to a long finish. Lots of ageing
