2019 Georges Glantenay Volnay 1er Brouillards MAGNUM



Their large 1.1 hectare parcel of Brouillards is quite simply as good as it gets, from 70+ year old vines. Just as Allan’s note portends, this is classic!! A vertical of Brouillards ’17-’18-’19, anyone???

“(from a 1.10 ha holding). A much more floral-inflected nose exhibits notes of violet, lavender and rose petal along with those of black cherry and plum. The texture of the medium-bodied flavors is a combination of power and refinement with an almost pungent minerality that adds a sense of lift to the firm and chiseled but not really austere finale. This too is really quite lovely and very Volnay – recommended. (91-93)/2029+” Allan Meadows ———-> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”

“The vines date back to 1950 (0.83ha) and 1999 (0.27ha). Clear bright purple. The nose is especially heady, actually the most interesting of the three Volnay 1ers crus. Les Brouillards ripens later than its neighbours Les Angles and Fremiers. Superbly succulent, with a beautiful juicy deep black and red fruit. Good length.” 91-94 Jasper Morris Four Stars
