Domaine NICOLAS ROSSIGNOL Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" 2016

Wine Region: Burgundy - France

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting notes: "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots was 100% destemmed and had no SO2 during fermentation, which is why I could pick up a slight prune-like scent that will disappear once Nicolas adds the sulfur. The palate has plenty of matière, good depth and structure with Pommard like tannin. I will not rate this now and will wait until bottling." - Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate

About the winery:
Part of the fifth generation, Nicolas joined the family estate in 1994. After a few experiences in the four corners of France and South Africa, he created his own Domaine in 1997. Today, both Domaines are merged, representing 17 hectares and more than thirty appellations. Nicolas believes that the future of wine lies in innovation rather than sticking to the rules of the past. The vineyard is managed sustainably and also takes into account the lunar influence both for the work of the vine and for the development and ageing of the wines.
