Volnay Clos des Ducs 2009 Marquis d'Angerville
|Region||Burgundy, Cotes de Nuits|
The 2009 Volnay Clos Des Ducs is the only wine in this lineup that is playing its cards close to the vest. Weightless yet powerful, the Clos des Ducs impresses for its striking balance and poise. There is so much going on in the glass its hard to know where to start. Floral notes meld into hints of licorice, sweet red cherries and mint in this crystalline, totally gorgeous Volnay. Today the tannins are impossibly firm, so readers will have to be patient. This is far from an easygoing 2009.

Though elegant, this is lean, delivering strawberry and raspberry notes matched to a silky texture and steely structure. Seems built for aging, with a spice and mineral aftertaste.
