As usual, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Angles is the most immediate and seductive wine in the cellar, bursting with aromas of red berries, cherries, peonies and dried flowers. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and enveloping, with an ample core of fruit, succulent acids and fine, chalky tannins. (WK)
Once again there an elevated level of ripeness to the still fresh nose of cassis, black cherry and poached plum. The slightly more elegant and more concentrated medium-bodied flavors possess fine richness; indeed the texture is quite seductive, all wrapped in a complex, long and balanced finale where a hint of bitter pit fruit arises. *Outstanding*
The 2018 Volnay Clos des Angles 1er Cru comes from a vintage after which half the vineyard was uprooted due to the aged vines that were planted in the 1950s. It has quite an intense bouquet of blueberry and wild strawberry fruit, a little more precocious than the Les Fremiets. The pure, poised palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins and flavors of black cherry and strawberry pastilles. Very smooth toward the finish, which feels caressing. This Clos des Angles will be approachable and difficult to resist in its youth. (NM)
