Louis Jadot Volnay Clos de la Barre 2015
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
Wholly controlled by the producer, this walled vineyard on the edge of Volnay village has made a beautifully concentrated, balanced wine. Still young, it already has ripe red fruits with shapely tannins and acidity to match. The smoky aftertaste adds to the complexity. Drink from 2022.
The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos de la Barre has a more detailed and focused bouquet than the Santenots and en l'Ormeau, subtle sous-bois scents infusing the detailed red berry fruit mixed with cranberry and wild hedgerow. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with tart red cherries and raspberry, well structured and very focused. This shows the most class within the five Volnay 2015s that I tasted from Maison Louis Jadot. This is excellent.
