ready-improve2014 Volnay, Domaine du Comte Armand

  • Ready, but will improve


Bright red in colour, with immediate deep red fruit aromatics, this has plenty of fruit and energy on the palate with a slightly firm finish which the fruit will grow through.

Paul Zinetti has replaced Benjamin Leroux as régisseur (general manager) at this famous estate. He has inherited a great position but also, alas, a tradition of hail-affected vintages. With this in mind, Paul has looked for lighter extraction in 2014, with less punching down than previously. He has been with the domaine for several years prior to taking over, so he is fully au fait with these vineyards. The village Auxey is a steal this year.
