Wine information

The vineyards of Volnay are located between Monthélie and Meursault in the southwest and Pommard in the northeast. There are 98.37 hectares of Volnay Village and 114.9 hectares of Volnay Premier Cru, of which Les Santenots alone comprise 29.07 hectares. The special thing about the Les Santenots vineyard, which was first mentioned in 1218, is that it is actually completely located in the Meursault parish, but the red wines are produced as Volnay since there is no red Meursault may give. Les Santenots has a high clay content, which makes the red wines somewhat more powerful and richer in texture. At the same time, however, the wines always retain the fine tannin of the Volnay's.

Rémi Jobard fermented the wine spontaneously with 80 % whole grapes. Like his Chardonnays, his Pinots mature in Stockinger barrels and tonneaux.
