A discreet but not invisible touch of wood frames markedly ripe aromas of cassis, anise, tea and warm earth. There is both good richness and energy to the enveloping medium weight flavors that also exude a fine bead of minerality, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and ever-so-slightly rustic finale. This is pretty much textbook l'Audignac.
Red-ruby color shows less saturation than the Clos de la Bousse d'Or. A bit lower-pitched and wilder on the nose, offering soil-driven scents of boysenberry, redcurrant, ginger, leather and underbrush. In a very supple style, with inviting sweetness nicely countered by ripe acidity. Finishes supple and dry, with big, horizontal tannins saturating the palate.(ST)
The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos d'Audignac veers more towards the red fruit spectrum vis-à-vis the Volnay Clos de la Bousse d'Or: confit black fruit, hints of fig and dates, nicely defined yet unashamedly rich in style. The palate is structured on the entry with firm tannin, a more masculine Volnay with a peppery, quite sinewy finish that needs to develop a little more finesse.
