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.

2017 Volnay, Comte Armand
Domaine Comte Armand

With the Clos des Epeneaux in the hands of the Comte Armand since 1826, this estate celebrates a rich and successful history. 2014 was young Beaune native Paul Zinetti’s first vintage at the helm of the estate, and in the years to come he’s certain to grow in renown and stature. Here is a winemaker with a golden touch and high aspirations, not least to see the Epeneaux climat awarded grand cru classification. We look forward to seeing how the wines of Comte Armand develop.
