Why We're Buying

Domaine Henri Boillot Les Frémiets offers an exemplary version of Volnay. The full-bodied pinot noir has a generous mouthfeel with black cherries, plums, and raspberries embedded in subtly spicy and saline notes. Best of all, it has a lingering finish that endures for more than 30 seconds.

Vinous

these vines are 25 to 50 years old; from whiter soil that typical yields a harder, more austere style of wine than the Chevrets): Medium red. More discreet and a bit more medicinal on the nose than the Chevrets. Juicy red berry flavors are lifted by spicy high notes but kept under wraps by salty minerality and a medicinal menthol aspect.. Boasts lovely lift and inner-mouth tension and finishes with very fine-grained tannins, but this very promising wine will require at least a few years of bottle aging to loosen up a bit. 91-93 Points
