Maison Roche de Bellene (Nicholas Potel), Volnay Les Mitans 1er Cru 2009

Roche de Bellene Volnay Mitans 2009 #1Five years on tasting.

Limpid ruby.  Ravishing for Mitans: resplendent griotte and raspberry liqueur in place of a more telltale groseille character.  Fragrant cinnamon and peony.  Suave yet judicious use of oak.  Ripe, well-covered, late-arriving tannin.  Lots of wine here with a tilt towards glacé.  Over time (this was consumed over a week) the transparency shows: rosehips, blood orange and Mitans’ lacy minerality.  Will come forward soon.  From 2016.
