2005 voillot volnay 1er brouillards

joseph voillot volnay brouillardsBurghound went overboard (perhaps) on the 05 Voillots so I was happy to find a few bottles – if this, the ‘smallest’ bottling is any benchmark then Burghound was ‘on the money’ and I can’t wait to try the higher scoring wines. Seems I did very well to pick up a few magnums!
2005 Joseph Voillot, Volnay 1er Les Brouillards try to find this wine...
Medium cherry-red colour – relative to its age and other wines of the vintage it’s quite light in colour. The nose is forward and shows a lovely perfume; floral top notes and bright red berries with red cherry at the base. Fine silken texture, perfect acidity and a slowly fading, cream-edged finish. Not powerful, but it has real dimension, class and elegance – excellent.
Rebuy – Yes
