FRANCE : BURGUNDY : CÔTE DE BEAUNE : VOLNAY
MED-BODIED, BLACKBERRY, RASPBERRY, CRANBERRY, EARTH, BAKING SPICE, OAK
Domaine Jessiaume’s Volnay proves that the region’s reputation as one of the best places in the Côte d’Or to find fragrant, “feminine” red Burgundy is well-earned. It is powerful and lively, yet elegant, and silky — with intensely concentrated, scrumptious red and black fruits, pleasant hints of cinnamon and wood, and acidity that sings. Drink now or keep for 5-7 years.
