2020 Volnay 1er Cru Carelle sous la Chapelle, Domaine François Buffet

2020 Volnay 1er Cru Carelle sous la Chapelle, Domaine François Buffet

This has the detailed nose of sweet red berry fruit and floral lift we love in Volnay. The site’s generous top soil makes for a wine of appealing charm, marking it out as one of the earliest drinking of the Buffet Volnay premiers crus. The fruit is completely destemmed, and the wine has a sumptuous, succulent texture on the palate. Cellar for a few years, then don’t hold back.

Tasting notes

The 2020 Volnay Carelle Sous La Chapelle 1er Cru has slightly darker fruit, cranberry and touches of blackcurrant, very well defined with nicely integrated oak. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip, lightly spiced with a gentle grip on the saline finish. Good potential.
