2011 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay 1er Cru "Ronceret"

SKU #1237842 93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is almost as aromatically elegant with pure essence of raspberry and cherry liqueur aromas that evidence background hints of wet stone and spice. There is good volume and excellent punch to the round and supple medium weight flavors that possess a dusty mouth feel before culminating in a relatively powerful and impeccably well-balanced finish. This doesn't have the same overall class as the Caillerets but there is actually more here. Worth a search to find. *Sweet Spot. Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2013)

90-92 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Good bright medium red. Dark fruit aromas of blueberry and blackberry convey a menthol austerity. Tightly wound and unforthcoming, showing a lightly saline character but limited mid-palate complexity today. The strict finish features powerful, tongue-dusting tannins. This is really dominated by its structure. Incidentally, Rossignol purchased these 25-year-old vines in 2012. (ST) Inner quote mark (1/2013)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Usually all destemmed but in 2011 they did 15% whole bunch. ‘My baby. A cru I love.’ 1.5 ha in total, under Champans, vines only 25 years but great personality. Very intense – nose almost of curry as well as all that lovely ripe fruit. Actually it's quite severe. Chewy and ambitious. Definitely needs time. (JR) 17/20 points Inner quote mark (1/2013)
