Domaine Faiveley Volnay Premier Cru 'Fremiets' 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

89-91 points Allen Meadows (Burghound): This is a classic Volnay with an ultra-elegant and admirably pure nose of red pinot fruit and floral notes that marry into intensely stony, vibrant and utterly delicious flavors that possess a lacy, even slightly creamy texture on the lingering finish. This is certainly attractive though it perhaps doesn't quite have the laser-like delineation that one often experiences with a fine Frémiets. That is a minor nit however and overall this is lovely. Drink: 2017+. (Jan 2012)

Bright medium red. Reticent aromas of cherry menthol and spices. A step up in sweetness from the Clos de l Ecu but youthfully closed today showing more saline and spice notes than primary fruit. Finishes with some firm oak-driven tannins. Stephen Tanzers IWC.
