Volnay epitomizes femininity, in contrast to Pommard’s masculinity. You can almost see it in the contrast of the villages’ buildings. Volnay is a cozy cluster of lovely old homes lining narrow lanes, while Pommard’s gated, stately manor houses proudly surround the grand church on the town square. Their primary shared attribute is that they only make Pinot Noir. Volnay delivers svelte tannins and supple fruit: red cherry, raspberry and red plum.
