Domaine Nicolas Rossignol, Volnay Les Santenots 1er Cru 2006

Nicholas Rossignol Volnay Santenots 2006 #1Fullish ruby red, purple to the rim.  Glam, carnal nose with a char-y reductive streak: raspberry eau de vie, soy, nutmeg, black cardamom.  Barrel tones of spice and vanilla.  Some density and a sève texture to this Santenots with aspirations for velvet, medium-full: black raspberry liqueur, forest black cherry.  Dusty, chalk-mineral-cocoa powder finish.  Nicholas went easy enough through the fermentative extraction here; this ’06 Santenots does not reflect the hail.   Modern without being forced.  If you are drinking this today, think about giving it a couple hours for the oak toast to lift.  Sanguine, masculine Santenots.  We would think about consuming the majority of these by its tenth birthday; will keep for fifteen+.   Now – 2016+.
