Although firmly based in Gevrey-Chambertin, Sylvie also does a mere 0.17 hectares of this Volnay Premier Cru. And making wines of such maturity and complexity as she does in the Cote d’Or, here her rendering of pinot noir planted on Les Santenots’ clay-rich terroir makes for a full-bodied wine, velvety in texture and cleanly defined. Fresh violets on the nose, lots of black cherry and mild spice with finely tuned tannins on the palate, it retains great freshness, depth and length finishing up.

We generally use specialised fine wine delivery couriers rather than standard couriers, giving a much higher level of care and accuracy in delivering fine wines safely to you. Wines can be delivered duty-paid to UK addresses upon payment of the required duty, VAT, delivery and storage charges (if applicable). Duty and VAT are as set by HMRC at the time of delivery. Delivery charges are based on number of cases to be delivered and are standard for all UK addresses except highlands and islands. Please ask for a quotation for highlands and islands, transfers to another bonded warehouse and for international transfers.
