Clos de la Chapelle, Volnay En Carelle 1er Cru, 2015

“The domaine’s vines in en Carelle range from these fifty-five to sixty years of age, and as I mentioned last year, they are planted north-south, rather than the customary east-west. The 2014 here turned out really well, particularly considering the hail that hit this vineyard, but the 2015 version is even a small step up in quality and really an exceptional young Volnay. The nose is deep, pure and very classy, offering up scents of red plums,black cherries, raw cocoa, incipient pigeon, woodsmoke, complex soil tones and cedary wood. On the palate the wine is pure, complex and full-bodied, with great velvety elegance on the attack, a sappy core, fine- grained tannins and excellent focus and grip on the very long and well-balanced finish. This tastes as if it were picked ahead of the two Beaune premier crus and at the peak of perfect ripeness.”
