Domaine Bernard et Thierry Glantenay Volnay 1er Cru Les Brouillards 2018
|Brand||Domaine Bernard et Thierry Glantenay|
55-80 year old vines located on the lower slope on the Pommard border (below Fremiets); 100% barrel aged, 30% whole-cluster fermentation; 33% new oak for 16 months. Ripe blackberry and cherry fruit, roasted meat, forest floor present themselves on the nose; Super attack with lots of power; dark fruit compote, tree bark, very savory and spicy with lots of calcaire driven earth qualities; very compact and good tension; the finish showcases the earthiness aspects of the wine and is excellently complex and long.
A touch of iron oxide enriches the red currant and cherry notes of this wine. The palate offers exquisitely elegant concentration, like silk that flashes highlights of cranberry and lowlights of tar, licorice and coffee. Pervasive freshness will guide this wine throughout its evolution.”
