Bright medium red. Precise, high-pitched aromas and flavors of red cherry, raspberry and chalky minerality. Juicy, vibrant and pure, delivering impressive intensity without any obvious weight. Terrific mineral cut and a firm acid/tannin spine should keep this beauty youthful for many years. Offers outstanding verve for the vintage.

Dark red cherry, plum and spice notes abound in the 2011 Volnay Fremiets. A rich, juicy wine for the year, the 2011 impresses for its volume and pure voluptuousness. Although quite racy for the vintage, the 2011 has more than enough depth and structure to drink nicely for at least a number of years. There is so much to like here, not least of which is the wine's open, resonant personality.
