About the Wine
Domaine Georges Glantenay was founded in 1893 in Volnay by Pierre Glantenay. Today the estate is managed by the 4th generation Guillaume and Sarah Glantenay. There are 8 hectares of vines, conducted in sustainable agriculture, with the greatest respect for the terroir. Every day they focus on maintaining and beautifying the family's heritage. With the greatest care, the vineyards are managed plant by plant to produce wines whose personality reflects the authenticity of the Burgundy terroir. The harvest is entirely manual, and the rigorous selection: the grapes are sorted first in the vineyard and then a second time when they arrive in the vats using a vibrating sorting table. All of the wines are vinified in stainless steel vats then aged in French oak for 10 to 18 months depending on the appellation. The winery was completely renovated in 2014.
Tasting Notes: 0.275 Hectare; 65-year-old vines; Rugiens is considered the “Grand Cru” of Pommard located mid-slope on the Volnay side of the village; 100% barrel-aged, 30% whole-cluster fermentation; 80% new oak for 15 months. The powerful and perfumed toasty nose of black fruits including plum, lots of earth as well. This is a dense, compact wine in the mouth, meaty, leather hints, lots of soil complexity. The finish is incredibly long and complex; exotic spices, anise, and spicy oak emerge here.

A little more pure ripe fruit than the village bottling here, offering strawberries, orange peel, and flowers, as well as dust. Medium to full body, firm and tight tannins and undertones of orange peel and dried fruit. Tight. Drink now.~94 James Suckling
