The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru les Fremiets has an elegant bouquet with scents of briary, woodland and red berry fruit. There is lovely purity of fruit here, great transparency. The palate is well balanced with fine structure, quite firm tannin, superb focus with red merging with black fruit towards the slightly saline finish. This is a great wine from Jean-Pierre Chalot. (NM)
The Fremiets is lovely and expressive this year, revealing a perfumed nose of wild berries, flowers and rich soil tones. This leads into an elegant, expansive palate framed by fine tannins and juicy acidity with a pure, precise finish. (WK)
A mix of spice and berry aromas and flavors are the hallmarks of this tight, linear red. Shows some oak for now, yet all the elements are there and this finishes long and balanced. Cool and reserved, this just needs time. (BS)
Subtle but not invisible wood frames the pungently earthy aromas of ripe red berries, earth and an interesting array of spice and dried orange peel nuances. There is good vibrancy to the sleek and mineral-inflected flavors that possess a really lovely mouth feel, all wrapped in a dusty, serious, well-balanced and lingering finish where the wood telegraphed by the nose resurfaces.
