Volnay 1er Cru Fremiets, 2011, Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
Note: 100% whole clusters
An intensely floral nose is also exuberantly spicy with very cool yet ripe red berry fruit, pungent earth and hints of smoked meat.
There is superb detail and excellent underlying tension to the big-bodied, powerful and overtly muscular flavors that display truly striking complexity on the splendidly persistent finish.
This is just flat out marvelous.
