Volnay 1er Cru les Fremiets

2018
France
Burgundy

From 1.5 acres whose vines date from 1932, 1950, and 1978. This parcel is up-slope, and the wine is very calcaire, or limestony; you literally taste the stone in this elegant, intensely perfumed wine.  This is Voillot’s most quintessential Volnay, despite the fact that this vineyard borders the Pommard AC.

"Mingling notions of cassis, cherries and plums with hints of coniferous forest floor and dark chocolate, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Fremiets is medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with an enveloping, multidimensional core, fine energy and a mouthwateringly saline finish."
