Red wine. Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France. Sustainable. 100% Pinot Noir. "The Volnay villages cuvée chez Glantenay always includes two small parcels of premier cru in the blend, as these two plots of vines are too petite to be bottled on their own, and Monsieur Glantenay is of the opinion that he would rather have them adding depth and dimension to the AC bottling than try to vinify them on their own. However, the very short yields of 2016 have forced Bernard to also include the crop from les Brouillards in the cuvée this year, which has made for a simply outstanding villages! The bouquet here is excellent, jumping from the glass in a refined mix of cassis, sweet dark berries, a touch of currant leaf, espresso, dark soil tones and plenty of upper register smokiness. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, vibrant and shows off beautiful sappy depth at the core, with excellent soil signature, fine-grained tannins and a long, tangy and well-balanced finish. Impressive AC." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #74 (Mar./Apr. 2018)
