Volnay "Fremiets" 1er Cru 2008, Marquis d'Angerville
Back in 2006 I tasted at the Marquis d'Angerville domaine in Volnay and was not impressed by the wines -- especially in the context of the elevated prices. This Fremiets is more encouraging. Aged in 30% new oak the wine proffers nutmeg, capsicum spice, vanilla, arrow root. Fairly high acidity for a 2008. I'm struggling to find the fruit depth in this Yves St Laurent style wine.
