2020 Volnay, Comte Armand

This Volnay is so crunchy, vibrant and aromatically spiced through with wild strawberry fruit. It can suffer in very hot years, but in fact, has come out fighting in 2020. It is a blend of two parcels, Les Famines and Les Grands Champs, in the centre of the commune. There is such a pillowy texture to the fruit. This is a delicate Burgundy with just enough of that sweet, scented fruit extracted to make it both tender and mineral.

TASTING NOTES

The 2020 Volnay Village has a refined, quite intense cassis and black cherry nose, quite high toned but managing to retain its delineation. The palate is quite intense but pure with blood orange infused red fruit, gentle grip towards the slightly brittle finish, quite spicy on the aftertaste. Give this 3-5 years in bottle.
