The 2018 Domaine Nicolas Rossignol Volnay is a testament to the classic elegance of Burgundy. This wine, with its savory character and a 90/100 rating from critics, is a ruby red gem. Initially presenting a slight reduction, it quickly opens up to reveal fine aromas of red cherries, currants, blood oranges, and a bouquet of herbs, complemented by a cool, chalky minerality. On the palate, it starts off light-footed and elegant, then gains momentum with a very tight structure. The red fruit is balanced by noticeable tannins and a lively acidity, creating a structural corset that, while still a bit unruly in its youth, promises excellent potential for a decade of maturation. It finishes with a medium length on red cherries and blood orange zest. Benefiting from 1-2 years of cellar aging, this wine is poised to evolve beautifully from 2022 to beyond 2032.
