Here the nose is appreciably fresher and also displays notes of red currant though the minerality now extends to the aromas and in hallmark Frémiets style, also suffuses the rich, supple and refined middle weight flavors blessed with ample amounts of dry extract that buffer the moderately firm tannins on the impressively long finish. The minerality is so strong that there is a Chablis-like saline character. A classy effort of finesse. (AM)
The 2009 Volnay Fremiet is beautifully pointed. Sweet dark cherries, plums, violets, graphite and licorice are woven together in an articulate, chiseled Volnay that impresses for its energy, delineation and sheer underlying structure. All the elements are in the right place. This is a terrific showing from d’Angerville and one of the few 2009s that actually needs time to come together. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2029. I tasted the 2009s from D’Angerville twice recently, once at the winery in December 2011 and a second time in my office in New York. The Volnay, Volnay 1er and Volnay Champans were all less impressive than the first time I tasted those wines, just after botting. Time will tell if the wines are going through a closed phase today, or if I overrated them the first time around. (AG)
A dark, spicy version, featuring black currant, raspberry and cracked pepper aromas and flavors, all matched to a steely backbone. This is a sinewy red, with dense tannins and a long finish. Best from 2015 through 2032. (BS)
Good deep cherry-red color. Superripe but lively aromas of cherry liqueur and exotic spices. Large-scaled and quite full for this cuvee, but with intriguing saline minerality and strong soil tones to the very rich redcurrant and spice flavors. Finishes with substantial ripe tannins and very good length. I'd enjoy this wine for its fruit over the next six or seven years.
