Producer: Domaine Georges Glantenay
Guillaume Glantenay is the sixth generation of his family to run this domaine, which he took over from his father in 2013. His father still works the estate’s eight hectares of vineyard, four of which are in Volnay, while Guillaume runs the new cuverie. For those who remember the wines from his father’s time, Guillaume has brought a greater elegance to the wines, and a lovely purity of fruit. He uses about 15-20% whole bunch to lift the perfumes and low toast oak to support rather than mask these aromas.
This wine has aromas of ripe dark fruit, notably blackcurrants and cherries, exuding from the glass. Woody, spicy notes give way to a fresh, fruity palate. It is a delicate wine will a long finish.
