The 2020 Volnay Les Frémiets 1er Cru is more earthier on the nose than the Village Cru and demonstrates more red fruit, touches of tobacco and Early Grey emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent red berry fruit, quite saline with a dash of white pepper towards the finish. If you don’t manage to grab the Clos des Epeneaux this year, try to get your mitts in this
