Red Burgundy-Cote de Nuits

2016 Tawse Volnay 1er Fremiets

This is the northern half of Burgundy's famed Cote D'Or. It is home to perhaps the noblest expression of Pinot Noir on planet Earth, if not the noblest expression of any wine on Earth; the minute yet palpable differences from single parcels of land were intuited by Cistercian monks who farmed the 'golden slope' for approximately two thousand years. From Corgoloin in the south, to Marsannay in the north, the finesse and complexity of the wines is at times both hauntingly beautiful and mind boggling. Its most celebrated villages: Nuits St Georges, Vougeot, Flagey Echezeaux, Vosne Romanee, Chambolle Musigny, Gevrey Chambertin, and Morey St Denis.

Price: $75.00

From the upper portion of Fremiets, next to Henri Boillot, this is telltale upper slope, finesse and mineral driven Fremiets, all about grace as opposed to power. Next to the thunderclap of concentration in the Lavières, this is one cool cucumber, très zen. A little star * awarded here.
"(50% whole cluster). Cassis flower style reduction. There is a really lovely mouthfeel to the sleek, intense and beautifully well-detailed middle weight flavors that brim with minerality on the gorgeously refined finish that delivers sneaky good length.
