Medium concentration with a crimson center and light violet rim. Slow to get started but evolved nicely. Med intensity on the nose with med + complexity. Roasted orange peel, spices, flowers, and ripe red compact fruit. The palate was less complex and age has really loosened the wine up. Soft tannins, present alcohol, and fine acid. Velvety comes to mind. Length was med. #josephdrouhin #volnay #pinotnoir #burgundy #cotedebeaune #premiercru #ctbucklinwine — 3 years ago
#thanksgiving #Volnay deep crimson with watery delicate surface. Extends to the edge. Ruby crimson Cran variation
The nose is mushroom, damp soil with some asphalt. Brambley Bing cherry, raspberry.
I like the fluidity. Good structure with cranberry type acid. Medium body. Black cherry, more raspberry. The finish is supple and quick.

Red core with brown rim. The nose was mature with med intensity. Med complexity showing desiccated red cherry and blackberry, stem, dried leaves, anise. The structure was soft and the the body a touch watery. No tension and med - complexity. Dry and short finish. #nicolasrossignol #volnay #pinotnoir #burgundy #ctbucklinwine — 2 years ago
