Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
Nicolas Rossignol is a new superstar in the village of Volnay, making deeply coloured flavourful wines from his own vines and from the fruit of the family vineyard, where the wines were in the past labelled 'Rossignol-Jeanniard'. He has now agreed with his family that he buys all the fruit, and so the wines are now labelled very similarly, either with or without the word 'domaine'.
Since these are all vineyards under his sole control thoughout the year, it really does not make any difference which is which. The character of each site shows through all the wines, but perhaps especially in the beautifully balanced Volnays, which incline to a very bright, transparent, incisive style. Sadly 2012, 2013 and now 2014 have all been hit hard by hail, so these wines are getting a bit rare - the volumes have been catastrophically down.
An exceptionally fresh and cool but ripe nose of black cherry and wet stone aromas introduces rich, round and relatively finely detailed medium weight flavors that are underpinned by a firm but not aggressive tannic spine, all wrapped in an energetic and impressively long finish. An excellent villages. Drink 2017+ Rating: 89-89 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Jun 2012)
