About This Vineyard

The majority of Domaine Roblet-Monnot’s holdings are in Volnay, but there is a lone parcel in Pommard. From the obscure premier cru Arvelots, Pascal makes a lush, concentrated organic wine that avoids the firm tannins often associated with this village. The heart of the portfolio lies in Volnay where Pascal produces one village and five premier cru cuvees. The St. Francois bottling is a blend of several vineyards in Volnay, some of which are premier cru. Rich and dense on the palate, this organic wine offers tremendous value.

Brouillards sits on the Pommard border, which is reflected in the wine’s full, powerful structure. Santenots, which is actually located in Meursault, produces a rich, round wine with long aging potential. The premier cru Piture-Desssus ajoins the well known Clos des Ducs, but it is rarely seen. Pascal owns 60 year old vines in this vineyard and from it comes a fragrant, earthy wine.

The domaine’s top Volnay is produced from the Taillepieds vineyard, which lies in the best section of the village. Deep, rich and very complex, Roblet-Monnot’s bottling is a stunning example of Volnay. Pascal uses a very light touch in the cellar. A vibrating sorting table is used to ensure that only the most pristine fruit enters the cellar. Only a small percentage of the stems are retained and no wine sees more than 25% new oak. The resulting wines are rich, concentrated and intensely fragrant. Until recently, Pascal shared his facility with Cecile Tremblay and their wines bear strong stylistic similarities.
