Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey 2018 Premier Cru Volnay. Just $113.95 a bottle

Including the top 1er Cru Clos de Chenes
The Vaudoisey family came to Volnay in 1804. In recent years it is Christophe, the eighth generation, who has taken the domaine to new levels. He took over the domaine from his father in 1985, built a new winery in 2008, and from then on the wines have received many accolades from Guide Hachette and other French publications.
 
Over the past decade we have seen the quality of Volnay escalate. With prices in the Cote de Nuits always rising Volnay presents a destination for delightful, aromatic wines at joyous prices.
 
At the top of the tree is Domaine Christophe Vaudoisey who produce a lovely range of wines at yesterday's prices. Their style is all about terroir and as those who grabbed some of the 2016's and 2017's will know the wines are pure, refined and delightfully aromatic. Just gorgeous expressions of Pinot Noir.
 
The 2018's are now in stock and over the weekend we tasted the three Volnay Premier Crus. What a lovely trio they are!
If you fancy some fine Premier Cru Red Burgundy at reasonable prices Domaine Vaudoisey should be on your shopping list.
Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes 2018
Normal Price $133.95
Special $113.95
Clos des Chenes is both large in size and personality. It is regarded as one of Volnay's top premier crus producing a rich and powerful wine with a nose featuring violets, a signature of this vineyard. Concentrated and built to age.
Darren Harris
Deep garnet. Enticing nose of crushed cherry, cherry stone, violets and warm stones. The palate displays perfectly ripe fruit that is fresh and vibrant with crisp acidity and a mineral intensity. There are some chalky tannins on the finish. Beautifully balanced, thought provoking, long and detailed - this is Volnay at its best. 
Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets 2018
Normal Price $133.95
Special $113.95
Caillerets is beautifully exposed to the south and east, moderately sloped, and is extremely highly regarded by the locals. As the name suggests the soil is full of small stones which aid drainage and reflect heat.
Darren Harris
Very deep garnet. Powerful, youthful nose with ripe plums, cherry, raspberry, smoke and spice. More immediately weighty than the Clos des Chenes with a generous and seductive palate. There’s a little oak but this is coated by the rich fruit. Old vine intensity. The wine tightens up on the finish suggesting so much more to come with some time in the cellar.  
Volnay 1er Cru Les Mitans 2018
Normal Price $133.95
Special $113.95
Les Mitans is a 3.98 hectare vineyard on the eastern side of the village. It was first mentioned in the records in 1236. The vineyard has light, stony topsoil and produces one of Volnay's most elegant and delicate expressions.
Darren Harris
Very deep garnet. Notes of red fruits and flowers with a little chocolate in the background. In the mouth Les Mitans has a fine, muscular profile. The least exuberent of the three Volnay 1er Crus with an understated power. Excellent length with precise mineral-enhanced flavours running through the wine from start to finish.
