|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2013 Volnay 1er Cru les Brouillards comes from purchased fruit and has a straightforward, slightly dusty bouquet with touches of mocha and dried blood. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins and decent fruit concentration, however I find the new oak (50%) too dominating on the finish.
Winespectator / James Suckling (89)
Burghound: Here the nose is more deeply pitched with more earth and game characters adding breadth to the red and dark currant aromas. There is also a bit more size, weight and intrinsic power to the tautly muscular medium weight flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the finish that also displays just a hint of edginess. This delicious effort should drink well young if desired and I would be inclined to give it only 5 to 7 years of bottle age.
