2015 Comte Armand Volnay 1er Cru "Frémiets" 6-Pack (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1534787 90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A deft application of wood sets off notably ripe dark currant, blue berry, plum and earth-suffused aromas. The equally ripe, rich and velvety flavors possess excellent size and weight before terminating in an utterly delicious, moderately firm and attractively long finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces. I very much like the sense of underlying tension and overall, this is a wine of relative refinement. Recommended. *Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2017)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets is lovely, wafting from the glass with notes of red plum, raspberry, spice and forest floor. On the palate, the wine is elegant, fine-grained and silky, only medium to full-bodied, its acids sappy and its finish long and intense, but far from the tannic powerhouse one might have anticipated. A beautiful Frémiets. Inner quote mark (4/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Notes of red and black cherry, herbs, woodsmoke and Pommard-like spice introduce a palate with a nicely gourmand attack, underpinned by a surprisingly assertive chassis of tannins. Like the Auxey premier cru, this wine is a bit more strongly marked by new oak than one might wish, though if any vintage can handle it, it's 2015. (WK) Inner quote mark (12/2016)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark (bottled in March of 2017; 30% new oak): Medium red Deep aromas of black raspberry, black cherry and spicy oak. A step up in sweetness from the Volnay villages and Auxey-Duresses wines, offering lovely ripeness and fat to its the purple fruit, smoke and chocolate flavors. This very rich, deep wine saturates the palate and spreads out horizontally on the back end, where the big tannins are nicely supported by the wine material. A serious wine with the stuffing to age well. (ST) 91+ Inner quote mark (1/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Perfumed, gentle texture, lots to chew on at the end but properly complex and serious. Pretty intense and chiselled. Relatively rich. Gives the impression of great care taken in vineyard and cellar. Long with a peacock's tail on the end. Some liquorice on the end too – most unusual in 2015 burgundy. Very well done. 17.5/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
