Bourgogne Red, Volnay 2013, Domaine Dubreuil-Fontaine
Product Number: 11-80041
|APPELLATION / REGION||Côte de Beaune, Volnay Village|
|Tasting Note||eRobert Parker / WA : 87-89/100 Neal Martin Half of the 2013 Volnay Village is actually premier cru and it offers a bright redcurrant and pomegranate-scented bouquet that is simple but clean and pure. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, decent backbone and a nicely focused, quite edgy finish. I like this – simple as that Burghound (BH) : 86/100 Allen Meadows Here the expressive nose is more elegant with its aromas of cherry, raspberry, spice and a floral hint. The detailed and punchy medium-bodied flavors possess a lovely mid-palate texture though the appealingly complex but mildly drying finish is a bit clipped and short. Wine Maker Tasting Note : Sustained ruby colour and beautiful brilliance. Delicate aromatics of cherries and redcurrants, well developed and extremely pleasant. The palate presents a silky flesh, beautiful tannins, which are well-balanced and will permit this wine to age. Match with poultry or white meat.|
