Volnay Vieilles Vignes Jean Jacques Girard, Cote du Nuits, Burgundy, 2008
100% Pinot Noir
Fresh red cherry aromas and a lovely, medium-bodied personality. Fleshy, intense, and with resiny cherry flavours, it displays admirable depth of fruit, a lush texture, and a long finish.
Jean-Jacques Girard describes 2008 as “decidedly complicated. The summer weather was less than glorious and very little seemed to go according to plan. Happily, just as it appeared as though matters couldn’t get much worse, the weather turned near perfect and together with a strong north wind, dried things out, stopped the rot, accelerated the maturities and almost before we could believe it, the harvest was upon us. We began picking on the 22 sorting required. While some of it was for rot, most of it was for under ripe or only partially ripe fruit. Overall, I like this vintage because it’s very terroir.
