Colour Red
Origin France, Burgundy

Village Bourgogne Rouge

Purple bright and with defined juicy fruit and very good body. Just racked, so hard to taste, but looks excellent. Drinking range: 2017 - L&S (Nov 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.

Lovely smoked paprika aroma, and dense cranberry fruit. Very savoury, very multi-layered. Definitely needs more time for the balance to settle, but there's no questioning the quality of fruit here. Drinking range: 2020 - 2024 Rating: 16.5+ Richard Hemming MW - 2017)

Medium red. Aromas of plum, redcurrant and smoke. Fat and sweet, showing the ripeness and richness of the year. Has the stuffing to support its substantial ripe tannins. Rating: 87-88 Stephen Tanzer, 2017)

The 2015 Bourgogne Rouge comes from Volnay and Pommard and sees no new oak. It has a crisp redcurrant and pomegranate nose with just a touch of pine needle. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp acidity, quite crunchy in the mouth with a brisk, chalky-textured finish. Drinking range: 2017 - 2020 Rating: 84-86 Neal Martin, 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.
