These vines are located lower down on the hill, with equal distance between the village of Volnay and the route national, on the limit of Volnay village and Bourgogne regional appellations. There is some talk that this parcel used to be classified a Volnay but was de-classified for some reason, though talking to Frédéric, it's been considered Burgundy-level since as long as he remembers. Regardless, ignoring official classification hierarchy, this wine is, as Russell puts it, a "baby Volnay": single-vineyard, might-as-well-be-Village-level wine with that typical Volnay limestone terroir. Entry-level pricing with a roundness that makes it approachable and easier to drink younger.

The 2020 Bourgogne Pinot Noir offers up notes of sweet berry fruit, orange rind, spices and smoke, followed by a medium-bodied, bright and lively palate that's fine-boned and elegant, concluding with a perfumed finish.

The 2020 Bourgogne Pinot Noir has quite a backward nose, darker fruit than some of its peers, though well defined. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good backbone here, also quite "strict" in style (in a Pommard kinda way). This might age better than you think.
