Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Premier Cru 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Burghound Like the Bourgogne there is just enough reduction present to render the nose difficult to assess. On the plus side there is both more elegance and refinement to the utterly delicious and vibrant flavors that display a lovely minerality on the firm, vibrant and intense finish that is very well-balanced. Once again however note well that this is not without a certain amount of muscularity and thus at least 5 to 7 years of bottle age will be necessary.
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Volnay 1er Cru, a blend of Volnay Les Pitures and Les Mitans (the latter partially uprooted in recent years so the blend comprises mainly of the former) saw about 15% new oak. It has a very intense bouquet with dark cherries, blackcurrant, violet and cassis, quite opaque at the moment. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin. There is certainly good concentration here with black rather than red fruit, noticeable salinity with a sappy, though slightly introverted finish that should gain more personality by the time of bottling. This is an excellent Volnay.
