2017 Volnay, Comte Armand
This is a blend of two parcels in the middle of the appellation: Les Famines and Les Grands Champs. The nose is pure red currants and cranberries with some light Chinese spice notes. Early picking captured the transparent freshness of the vintage. Well managed maceration and gentle extraction in the winery married with 15% new oak have produced silky and refined tannins that support the fresh structure of the vintage. A great return for this cuvée that was devastated by the 2016 frost.
