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: 0.3 Hectare; 65 year old vines; 100% barrel aged, 30% whole-cluster fermentation; 40% new oak for 16 months; 4 barrel production. The nose presents violet, cherry, currant and thyme. The palate is very complex with ripe dark fruit skin flavors and slight roasted meat flavors but always remaining fresh and pure with balance; pepper, herbs and soil pop out on the finish, really charming.
This wine is a masterful Pinot that exhibits purity, texture, and silkiness.
