Bitouzet-Prieur Volnay Les Aussy 1er Cru 2005
The boys at Woodland Hills Wine Company recommended the wines from this relatively unknown tiny producer from Volnay from the fab 2005 vintage. Picked up an assortment of their wines some 2 years ago, but have only recently come round to opening a bottle. Was pleasantly surpised by the quality, so I thought i'd share some tasting notes.
T-notes > Ruby red in color with wonderful aromas of pure red pinot fruit. In the mouth, elegant melange of sweet intense fruit flavors framed by lovely soft tannins. Mid-palate is chock a block full, with nice persistance on the finish. Really liked this quite a bit. Can't wait to get round to opening the Volnay Taillepieds and Volnay Caillerets! :-D
