Description

The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Frémiets exhibits lovely aromas of raspberries and cherries mingled with orange rind, spice and raw cocoa. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, lively and fine-boned, from more calcium-rich soils than Les Chevrets and built around bright acids and fine, chalky tannins. 93 points, William Kelley Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A restrained if clearly ripe nose is comprised by notes of cassis, black cherry, violet and pretty rose petal hints. The sleeker and more refined is perhaps not quite as concentrated flavors also possess a seductive texture and even more minerality, all wrapped in a mildly warm and youthfully austere finale that is slightly firmer. This too is lovely. 91 points Allen Meadows, Burghound

Always the first to be picked, and this year has been vinified half traditionally and half in barrel. Black purple in colour, I feared for over ripeness but this has retained some freshness at the back. It is certainly in blackberry mode, and just a touch dry behind. 89-91pts Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
