2020 Comte Armand, Volnay Premier Cru, Fremiets 6x75cl

VM92-94
*ON ALLOCATION - £408 per case of 6 bottles IB* One of the very finest producers in all of Burgundy, Domaine du Comte Armand is approaching its 200th anniversary very much at the top of its game.... After Pascal Marchant from 1985 to 1998, Benjamin Leroux from 1999 to 2013, Paul Zinetti is the third highly talented winemaker at the helm of this grand estate, and he is producing wines of rare depth, purity and character. The monumental Clos des Epeneaux, for a long time the only wine produced here, still gives the best Grands Crus a run for their money, but just as impressive is the unbeatable value delivered by the Auxey-Duresses cuvées and the delicacy and perfume of the Volnays. You can't go wrong at this address.

2020 Benjamin Leroux, Volnay Premier Cru, Les Mitans 6x75cl

VM90-92
Benjamin has been a good friend of ours since his days at Comte Armand, and his powerful, impressive winemaking style shines through in 2020 where concentration meets with backbone and guile in the... Volnay commune. He remembers his first ever visit to the UK back in 1999 where he spent some time staying with Richard Wheeler (Johnny's father, sadly passed away last year), memorable not least for the friendly dispute regarding the relative merits of local Mersea native Oysters versus their French counterparts! Benjamin’s Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans reflects the greatest attributes of this excellent vintage. Density, richness and structure are all to the fore in a cuvée which gets better with every passing vintage.

2020 Sylvie Esmonin, Volnay Premier Cru, Santenots 6x75cl

Although firmly based in Gevrey-Chambertin, Sylvie also does a mere 0.17 hectares of this Volnay Premier Cru. And making wines of such maturity and complexity as she does in the Cote d'Or, here her... rendering of pinot noir planted on Les Santenots' clay-rich terroir makes for a full-bodied wine, velvety in texture and cleanly defined. Fresh violets on the nose, lots of black cherry and mild spice with finely tuned tannins on the palate, it retains great freshness, depth and length finishing up.
