Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets, 2012, Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
Note: 50% whole clusters and made from yields of 8 hl/ha
Reduction. Here too there is excellent richness and outstanding volume to the solidly concentrated, powerful and energetic flavors where the underlying minerality is very much in evidence on the strikingly persistent finish.
This is a huge wine in the context of what is typically very Volnay in style yet it remains impeccably well-balanced. Even so, I would simply note that this is not one to buy expecting the usual Volnay lace and grace.
