Wine AdvocateThere are only two barrels of the 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets, which was impacted by the hail and consequently yields were reduced to 15 hectoliters per hectare. The vines here are more than 80 years old, assisted by younger 30-year-old vines. It tended to have small grapes on the older vines, generally with thick skins. The nose is a mixture of red and black fruit, raspberry coulis and wild strawberry, a touch of thyme. The palate is well structured with sappy red berry fruit, a pinch of white pepper and nicely structured on the finish à la Pommard, which is unsurprising given its location. What a beautiful Volnay. One to seek out if you couldn't get your mits on the Clos des Epenaux. Drink Date: 2019-2038.
