Marquis d'Angerville Volnay Champans 2016
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Champans has a much more introspective bouquet, broody at first and only reluctantly opening. There is plenty of black fruit here, but it is tightly coiled. The palate is more open and cannot disguise the plush blackberry and raspberry fruit. Perhaps compared to the Taillepieds it has less tension and nervosité? Conversely, while the nose is bashful, you end up appreciating the generosity on the finish but I wonder whether the Taillepieds will ultimately bestow the most intellect and terroir expression?
