Domaine Clos de la Chapelle - Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Chapelle – Monopole 2019

France, Bourgogne
92 BRG

Quite a bit of mystery surrounds this monopole vineyard, as it was only officially named in 1937, and was not mentioned in Dr. Lavalle's original classifications. It seems that it might have been part of the Clos de la Bousse d'Or, which lies just to the north of it, but the date and reason why the two vineyards were separated by a wall is unclear. 

The back wall, which makes it an official clos, was erected at a much later date, likely around the same time as the naming of the vineyard. The vineyard is part of the larger lieu-dit 1er Cru Le Village, which also includes the Clos de la Bousse d'Or.

Owning & Enjoying

Tasting notes

Ruby and garnet hues. An elegant bouquet, with aromas of very ripe berries and baking spices with a floral background. Lovely fullness on the palate, a supple and generous wine. Good tannic structure, with finesse and silkiness. A generous and long finish.

Pairing

In order to fully appreciate the aromas it is best to serve this wine between 15-16°C. An ideal pairing with lamb shank, duckling filet or sweetbreads with morels. Perfect as well to enjoy with triple cream cheeses such as Brillat-Savarin or Chaource.

Winery Description

The splendid vineyard of the Clos de la Chapelle monopoly has a long and colorful history, where the history of the magnificent chapel, which gave it its name, and that of the village of Volnay, once the residence of the Dukes of Burgundy, merge.


The Clos de la Chapelle was originally part of the Bousse d'Or estate, one plot of which was the property of the Confrérie du Saint-Sacrement and a second plot, property of the Carmelites of Beaune. The Revolution and the redemption of ecclesiastical property as national property resulted in a change of owners. The Pinard family will acquire these two entities which will be brought together later by Victor Boillot in 1865. The name, Domaine Clos de la Chapelle, was adopted in 1937, when the appellation was set up by the INAO.
Domaine Louis Boillot was made up of three small parcels of Premier Cru: Pommard Les Chanlins (very old vines), Volnay Carelle sous la Chapelle (now Volnay En Carelle), and the monopoly Volnay Clos de la Chapelle.
With the addition of 8 appellations all classified as Premier Cru and Grand Cru, Domaine Clos de la Chapelle now includes 11 distinct terroirs and a total area of ​​4 hectares of vines.
