2014 Pinot Noir Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
Lots of lovely ripe red currant and cherry fruit here. Still a little tight, and will be a joy in about three years from now. Good spice and lift, this is a surprisingly grown up glass of wine that will keep singing and dancing for at least five years. L&S (Jan 2016)
*Case Price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
A pretty and exceptionally fresh nose features notes of various red berries, violet and a hint of earth. There is both good volume and richness to the delicious flavors that conclude in a mildly austere and rustic finale. This possesses excellent complexity and overall it would make a great choice for an ageworthy house red. 2018+ Rating: 87 Allen Meadows, www.Burghound.com (Apr 2016)
Not as approachable as some of the other Bourgogne pinots, but if you like your wine meaty, leathery and farmyardy, this is for you. Rating: 7/10 Susie Barrie MW (Jan 2016)
Mid crimson – quite deep really! Fresh, green notes and a bit of truffle. Interesting! Crackling fruit and lots of fun. Drinking range: 2018 - 2022 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com (Jan 2016)
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.
