2015 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol
|Sub-district||Côte de Beaune|
(from 5 different lieux-dits). A ripe, fresh and pretty nose combines notes of various red berries, soft earth and ample floral nuances. There is a discreet bead of minerality suffusing the dense yet sleek middle weight flavors that deliver solid depth and length. Note that this will need at least a few years of bottle age first.

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Healthy bright red. Aromas of strawberry, raspberry and chocolate show modest lift today. A plush, lower-toned village wine with an easygoing texture to its flavors of redcurrant, plum, leather and earth. Rating: 87-89 Stephen Tanzer, www.vinousmedia.com (Jan 2017)
The 2015 Volnay Village is a blend of five vineyards from clayey parcels at the bottom of the slope and less clayey parcels at the top. This cru is fully de-stemmed. It has a well-defined, quite "correct" bouquet with red cherries, bergamot and light chalky scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fresh acidity, well-integrated new oak (15%) and a bright, lively finish with a pleasant minerally aftertaste.

Four parcels down side of the village and one up above the premier cru. All de-stemmed. “I did vinify the top separately, but I have not got enough to create a wine for a cuvée - I tried with 2002." High pink peppercorn notes. Red summer fruits. This is seductive, satin textured, juicy, rounded and then juicy fresh at the end. It has yummy succulence. Very Volnay. And the fresh tension of the limestone at the end of the finish. Love it. From 2018/9 Rating: 82 Sarah Marsh MW, The Burgundy Briefing (Dec 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.
