Volnay Premier Cru wines are still, dry red wines produced from Pinot Noir grapes grown in one or more of the 28 premier cru vineyard sites of the Volnay appellation in the Côte de Beaune subregion of Burgundy's Côte d'Or heartland. Volnay is renowned for producing some of the smoothest, most delicate red wines of the southern Côte d'Or. 

Unlike grand cru sites, which are often subject to their own appellation criteria (of which there are none in Volnay), premier cru wines are managed under the control of their wider appellation and their production criteria are often stricter than those applied to standard Volnay wines (often known as "Volnay village" wines). 

Most Volnay premier cru wines will append the name of the specific vineyard next to the "Premier Cru" title. Where a label states "Volnay Premier Cru", the wine is likely to be a blend or combination of wines or grapes from more than one premier cru vineyard.
