Domaine Charles, Volnay, Clos de la Cave
The Volnay “Clos de la Cave” pours a striking mid-ruby with garnet highlights. Subtle and precise floral notes with cherry and red cassis impress upon the nose, and after a few swirls in the glass, they really start to jump out, arresting your attention. On the palate, the wine is ethereal. It has a medium body, silky tannins and a lifted acidity that gives you a feeling like drinking a cloud: soft and lush in texture with a distinct airiness. The finish is sublime, perfectly encapsulating the delicate floral and red fruit flavours which seem to drift away. This Volnay is exquisite, a true gourmand wine. Enjoy with roast lamb or roast chicken.
Eye: Bright ruby-red, light garnet in colour. First nose: Its notes sing of violets, redcurrants and cherries. In the mouth: A bold, yet precocious, taste allows it to open up quite early. Its fresh attack and warm finish make it feel you’re biting into fruit and breathing in the flesh. Its velvety femininity is combined with great aromatic intensity,
making it the ideal accompaniment for sophisticated roast or glazed poultry dishes.
