Powerful, elegant and virile ... this is a first-class, large-scale Volnay produced by a flagship domain of the Côte de Beaune! More info

Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre that make up the cuvée are from sixty-six-year-old vines that have benefited from a clay and chalk-rich soil. Harvested, then destemmed they were then placed in concrete vats. André, his wife Marina and their daughter Alexandra then move on to pump-over and rack and return during fermentation then leave the grapes to macerate for forty days. The wine is then aged for a year. The wine is characterised by a frank and clean attack. It is ethereal on the palate. On the nose, complex aromas abound that oscillate between black fruit, spicy notes and some woody notes. Flavoursome and well balanced, it pairs well with delicate dishes such as marinated meat or mature cheeses.

Côtes du Rhône Villages Rasteau Elodie Balme (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Tajine d'agneau aux figues et abricots, Boles de Picolat à la catalane, Filet mignon de porc à la coppa et aux câpres.

Peak: Drink until 2029

Today, Elodie cultivates 17 hectares of 40 year old Grenache, Carignan, Mourvèdre, Cinsault, Syrah, Merlot, and Clairette vines in the Rasteau, Roaix and Buisson communes.
