Domaine Pillot, Volnay, Burgundy, France, 2017
A perfect and poised example of classic Burgundy. Volnay often holds a unique elegance that can be seen quite clearly in this bottle. The cold maceration in steel and concrete gives this nectar a freshness that sits right around the Pinot-esque earthiness that is seeminlgly awoken by the use of pure unadulterated indigenous yeast. All of this wine sees 15 months in French oak, but only 33% of the choice parcels see new oak. This allows for maximum restraint and dedication to a sense of style and grace that is rarely seen elsewhere in the world.
A tremendous value, this beautiful wine can be laid down to be enjoyed for, at least, the next 7 years. But, if you fancy older wine, don’t be afraid to keep it longer. That is, if you can hold out.
