Cool and very fresh aromas of red berry, stone and floral hints give way to vibrant, intense, detailed and mildly austere middle weight flavors that are shaped by phenolically ripe and quite fine tannins. The length is impressive and this is a classic Frémiets of finesse and minerality.
(90% destemmed, as this wine already had a relatively high pH) Good bright, deep red. Deep aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, minerals, menthol and spices. Then broad and suave in the mouth, with a light touch for 2009. Finishes long and refined, with captivating energy considering its 3.8 pH. Incidentally, this was the only cuvee acidified in the 2003 vintage, but it was left au naturel in 2009. (ST)
The 2009 Volnay Fremiets is delicate and graceful in its fragrant fruit. This approachable, open Volnay comes across as transparent, weightless and totally seductive. Leroux used 20% whole clusters in the final blend, in his customary manner, which in this case was 100% whole clusters on a small part of the oldest vines. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (AG)
