Peter Maude Fine Wines

2019, Domaine Marquis d'Angerville, VOLNAY 1er Cru "Fremiets"

A touch of menthol is present on the slightly riper nose that displays notes of plum, violet and anise. There is good refinement here as well though it's coupled with ample punch and minerallity, all wrapped in an impressively long, focused and relatively powerful finish. At least some patience strongly advised. Outstanding. 91-93 Burghound.

Fine mid purple. This is quite discreet, then some more powerful raspberry emerges. Very thick textured sweet raspberry/strawberry fruit, the warmth of the summer is a little more evident here. *** 89-91 Jasper Morris MW

Offering up lovely aromas of sweet berry fruit, plums, orange rind, raw cocoa and spices, the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Fremiet is medium to full-bodied, bright and mineral, concluding with a saline finish. It's a touch more refined and ethereal than the 2018, but like that wine, it's built to age. 92-94 William Kelley, Wine Advocate.
