2012 Volnay, Frémiets, 1er Cru, Domaine du Comte Armand

Sold Out

Only two barrels were produced this year and Benjamin used 50% of whole bunches in the fermentation. It has an attractive mid purple colour, with dense crunchy fruit, red cherries, and on the whole is very intense. Jasper Morris MW, Burgundy Wine Director Heavy hail fell on 30th June in the Volnay and Pommard vineyards, then in Auxey-Duresses in August. The generic Bourgogne vineyards got frosted somewhat as well, so across the whole domaine the yield is a miserable 12hl/ ha and may be even less for 2013. There will not be a Pommard Premier Cru this year. Fortunately winemaker and general man
