Appreciated for being a delicate wine, Volnay is often portrayed as one of Burgundy’s more feminine wines. The different structure of the soil make the “Santenots” a very aromatic and elegant wine, delicately complex and concentrated all at the same time. Pairs perfectly with game, prime rib or beef.
Red Burgundy might be the world’s most flexible food wine. The wine’s high acidity, medium body, medium alcohol, and low tannins make it very food-friendly. Red Burgundy, with its earthy and sometimes gamey character, is a classic partner to roasted game birds, grilled duck breast, and dishes that feature mushrooms, black truffles, or are rich in umami.
