Volnay, Clos des Ducs, 1er Cru, 2018

Tasting Note:

This has to go down as one of the most ethereal, elegant and expressive young Clos des Ducs we have tasted. Stylish, complex and intense in equal measure. This has a composed, assured quality that belies its strength and power. A cooling minerality offsets the fresh red and blueberry fruit. High-toned notes of cherry blossom complete the picture, echoing on the long finish. Intense and deep without carrying any excess weight. Sublime. The 52 "ouvrees" or 2.15 hectares that this great Clos vineyard spans, measure exactly the same as in the early part of the 16th century, its earliest recorded mention. The poor soils and steep, well drained slope of this limestone and marne vineyard tilts towards the south and south-east. The wines typically boast contrasting elegance and structure. Complex and harmonious, they have a great ageing capacity.
