Maison Roche de Bellene Volnay Les Mitans 1er Cru Rouge 2011Maison Roche de Bellene
GRAPE VARIETAL: 100% Pinot Noir
VOLNAY LES MITANS PREMIER CRU The “Mitans” premier cru climat lies mid-slope in the village of Volnay, which possibly explains the origin of the name (Mitans is Old French for “middle”). It is on the Pommard side of the village and has similar red clay and limestone subsoil, with a light-colored, stony topsoil. The wines combine the dense, earthy structure of Pommard with the aromatic elegance of Volnay.
