Splendid Volnay, splendid Pinot Noir: the sort of Burgundy you dream of. Sweet violets on the nose, dark fruit, violets, chocolate and minerals on the palate; intense, pure flavours weaving seamlessly in and out of each other then coming together in a complex whole; satin-smooth texture, lovely freshness and length. Lovely now, but there's no hurry. Rating: 94 www.thewinegang.com(Oct 2017)

A beautiful array of floral nuances that include rose petal, lavender and violet adds elegance to the restrained, airy and cool red currant aromas. The understated and equally restrained medium-bodied flavors culminate in an exceptionally pure and tension-filled finish that is pure silk. This lacy and strikingly beautiful effort is a classic Volnay as the palate impression is gossamer fine yet this will need plenty of cellar time. 2018+ Rating: 94 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com(Apr 2012)

Delightful wine, lifted and elegant. Pure, bright and aromatic. So enticing. There is sweetness at the front, an ample generosity in the middle and a refined, fresh perfumed finish. Such a charmer. Nudging very fine. From 2016 Rating: 18.75 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing(Jan 2012)

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.
