Didier Montchovet Volnay 2017 750mL


Pinot Noir 2017

Didier MONTCHOVET wines from Burgundy in Nantoux. Coming from a winemaking family, Didier Montchovet started making his own wines in 1984, starting his winery with 0.5 hectares. He already had strong beliefs in respecting the environment while making wine and used biodynamic methods in his vineyard and winemaking which has been certified biodynamic since 1984. Considered one of the pioneers in the area (literally, it was the first biodynamic certified estate in Burgundy) Didier knew he wanted to work embracing the local terroirs in a cohesive work environment. 

Traditional low vines plantings, planted on clay-limestone soils, planted in 1964. Hand harvested the grapes are left for a long and gentle fermented, transferred then to barrels for a long ageing of 18 months, bottled by gravity very little S02 added. A most elegant Pinot Noir with the finesse. Delicate aromas of red berries give way to a silky texture and round ripe cherry, raspberry and strawberry with smooth tannins.
