Open for business. Well balanced. If anything stands out, perhaps it's the tannins. Straight forward, well made, not complex, and meant for early drinking. Will, however hold and perhaps evolve into something better. Good value.
Produsentens beskrivelse: VOLNAY 2010 Terroir The vineyard is situated at the bottom of the hill with an East - South East exposure. The soil is composed of clay / marl, on a calcareous sub-soil. Grape Variety 100% PINOT NOIR Our oenologist's comments The colour is deep garnet. The nose opens on very spicy notes such as black pepper, fresh cinnamon and gingerbread. With some aeration, notes of very ripe black fruits like blackcurrant and blackberry become apparent. It has a very powerful and aromatic nose thanks to grapes which were at full maturity at the time of harvesting. On the palate, the first taste is velvety, yet slightly heady due to present but ripe tannins which give a very beautiful roundness of structure. This wine was aged in French oak barrels for 18 months, which has brought a lot of delicacy and elegance to this Volnay. The length on the finish is very intense which shows this is a wine which can be kept in a good cellar for up to 10 years from the vintage but one can begin to enjoy it from 2013. Sommelier's advice To be served with a duck cooked with green peppers, a haunch of venison cooked with raspberry vinegar, a Grenadin of veal with mushrooms, a rabbit stew or a good refined cheese.
