Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay Cailleret 2012
|Appellation||Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Nicolas Rossignol|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets is a blend of two different vineyards, one adjacent to Marquis d'Angerville from Nicolas's father and older vineyards from his grandfather next to "Clos des 60 Ouvrees." This was entirely de-stemmed. It probably is blessed with the purest aromatic profile from Nicolas Rossignol, with macerated dark cherries and cassis infused with fine mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that lend this Volnay very good backbone. There is a saline touch at the side of the mouth and it boasts a long, lightly spiced finish. Excellent.
