En Primeur | Domaine Nicolas Rossignol

Nicolas Rossignol is the fifth generation in his family of wine growers in Volnay and part of the dynamic generation who took on their family estates during the 1990s. Having started small with just 3 hectares, he has carefully built his domaine up to 17 hectares covering some of the most exceptional vineyards in Beaune, Pommard, Savigny Lès Beaune and Volnay. Nicolas’s winemaking is always adaptable, making the most of his modern winery on the outskirts of Beaune. He remains broad-minded on the question of destalking vs whole bunch vinification. He likes his wines to develop slowly in cask, to bring out greater aromatic complexity and contribute to strengthening a wine.

    A blend of 4 different plots, Les Buttes, Les Grand Champs, Les Famines and Les Lurets, from vineyards aged between 10-60 years old, produces a very complete example of the appellation. A crisp and energetic style, with bright, crunchy, fresh fruit flavours. A charming purity and clarity, and hints of what Nicolas describes as ‘sucrosité’ on the finish.

    Clos des Angles is a warm vineyard sitting beneath Clos des Duc. Noticeable wild spiced dark berry flavours, with a touch of mocha and fresh coffee bean showing the generosity of its sunny location. Very full and layered rounded tannins, rewarding and ample on the finish.

    Nicolas has two different vineyard plots in this fine Premier Cru. The younger 20-year-old parcel borders Volnay and the older 70-year-old parcel lies beside Meursault. He describes it as a Volnay with Côte de Nuits DNA. A graceful, silky harmonious style, with Chambolle fruit characteristics, with some sweet dark berry flamboyance. A perfect combination between charm and ample fruit.

    It is great to have this cuvée back in 2022, as Nicolas had to blend all his smaller Premier Cru cuvées together last year. A small three hectare Premier Cru, sitting above Grand Epenots, this is a wine which shows the quality of its fine location. A fresh and racy wine, with pure damson and Victoria plum flavours, the tannins have a steely edge to them, giving depth and firmness and a rewarding mouth-watering salinity on the finish.

    This vineyard lies at the foot of Les Caillerets, but its soil composition is quite different; more clay and pebbles result in a fuller, broader style of Volnay. A deep and almost brooding wine, with a wild savoury, autumnal forest scent. Sloes and bramble flavours and dark toffee. Full and very intense, a saline edge and dark bitter chocolate on the finish.

    From the lower slopes of Pommard, heading towards Beaune, part of the iron-rich soils of this vineyard were planted in 1900, creating an extremely intense and concentrated wine. Such was the quality of the fruit from these old vines in 2022, that Nicolas decided to do 100% whole bunch vinification. A perfume of dark cherry and wild fruits of the forest. The focus is on richness and sweetly spiced flavours, plump, with a fabulous volume which lingers for a very rewarding length of time on the finish. Lovely!
