Wine Region: Burgundy - France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Tasting notes: "Wafting from the glass with aromas of plums, wild berries, warm spices and licorice, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and layered, with fine concentration, lively acids and an ample core of fruit. Concluding with elegantly chalky grip on the finish, this cuvée has always been one of the more charming and immediate wines in the cellar, but it appears to be gaining in seriousness—without loosing any of that easy appeal." - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate
About the winery:
Part of the fifth generation, Nicolas joined the family estate in 1994. After a few experiences in the four corners of France and South Africa, he created his own Domaine in 1997. Today, both Domaines are merged, representing 17 hectares and more than thirty appellations. Nicolas believes that the future of wine lies in innovation rather than sticking to the rules of the past. The vineyard is managed sustainably and also takes into account the lunar influence both for the work of the vine and for the development and ageing of the wines.
