2017 Catherine et Claude Maréchal Volnay14006764
Claude and Catherine’s aim is to produce “vins de plaisir” – wines that are approachable and bring pleasure to all who drink them. Ultimately, Claude says, “you don’t make wine with techniques, you make wine with grapes. If you harvest ripe, healthy grapes, the wines will always be exemplary. "From a high slope facing Monthelie, this is always a superbly high toned wine with a beautiful, very sensual aroma. Gorgeous cherry stone and crushed strawberry with a floral lift and deep mineral depth. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very soil-driven in personality, with a sappy core of stunning fruit, ripe, seamless tannins and great focus and grip on the very long, very elegant and vibrant finish." - Andrew Guard
