2010 ROSSIGNOL NICOLAS VOLNAY SANTENOTS
"A very ripe nose of black raspberry liqueur and warm earth nuances where the latter character also suffuses the exceptionally rich flavors that ooze a plenitude of dry extract that renders the otherwise firm tannic spine almost invisible at present. This is an overtly powerful and muscular effort that is classy, harmonious and impressively persistent on the impeccably well-balanced finish. Terrific and very Santenots. Sweet Spot!"

After techical training in enology at the Lycee de Beaune he worked at a number of Estates in France and South Africa to gain additional experience in vinification and farming techniques.

|Nicolas Rossignol is one of the best examples of a new generation of Burgundy wine makers whose great wines lie in the future rather than the past, entering the fray in 1994. Born in 1974, he represents the 5th generation of vine growers on the soils of Volnay.
Nicolas makes wine from his own 11 acre estate, as well as from his fathers’s vineyards (12 acres). Nicolas is now buying all the fruit from his family’s Domaine, thus everything is bottled under the name Nicolas Rossignol (either with or without the word Domaine.)
