The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Les Angles was the first to be harvested since the alcohol potential was already 13.7?. This has a far superior bouquet than the Les Grandes Poisets with ample redcurrant and strawberry notes, with tangible mineralite and good tension. The palate is sweet, rounded and plush with sinewy tannin, but a fine threat of acidity and impressive density towards the finish. If you're looking for a well-made opulent Volnay, this is the ticket.

?The cool essence of red cherry, currant, floral and discreet wood nuances leads to detailed, punchy and precise medium-bodied flavors that possess a silky texture, all wrapped in a sappy and impressively long finale where a hint of cherry pit emerges. Good stuff.
