2002 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Fremiets"

SKU #1171849 91 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 (opened from personal storage). An exceptionally pretty and ripe nose mixes maturing fruit aromas of plum, black raspberry and hints of violets along with background nuances of iron-infused earth. There is fine richness to the round, elegant, pure and mineral-inflected medium-bodied flavors that possess good mid-palate density, all wrapped in a lingering and impressively persistent finish. Initially this is still fairly tightly wound but with 30 to 40 minutes of air it relaxed and was relatively open and accessible. For my taste, I would suggest holding it for another 2 to perhaps 4 years but at this point it would be no particular vinous crime to enjoy a bottle now. In a word, lovely.  (1/2012)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The ruby-colored 2002 Volnay Fremiet offers sweet red fruit and dark cherry aromas. Dominated by black cherries and red berries, its medium-bodied personality is silky, expressive, and structured. A hint of alcoholic warmth was detected in the finish. (PR)  (6/2004)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Good medium red. Nose dominated by cherry. Sweet, sappy flavors of red fruits and mint, with good fat for this holding. A fruit bomb of a Volnay, finishing with rather soft tannins. (ST)  (4/2004)
