2010 1er Cru Caillerets Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Very supple and silky, and seems more advanced, more precise than the Santenots. Scented fruit, mineral and floating, lovely cherryish finish. May just be because it's nearer to being ready to taste, but this is certainly lovely today. L&S (Apr 2017)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or buy 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified (as a full pack) to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
This is even more complex but also much more restrained with a spicy nose of plum, violets, earth, cassis and plenty of stone character. There is an abundance of sap that confers a velvety texture to the delicious, refined and well-delineated flavors that deliver superb depth and length on the mineral-inflected finish. In sum, this is an understated and positively stunning Caillerets. 2022+ Rating: 95 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com
Petally aroma. A sublimely subtle palate. Rippling fluidity with gossamer silky tannins and engaging energy. A filigree texture. Lovely freshness on the finish…pure and aromatic and petally on the finish. What a delight. A very fine finish. From 2016. Rating: 19 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing
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.
