BRAND NEW FRENCH PINOT "FIND"...YES, GREAT VALUE!!

QUINTESSENCE OF FINE PINOT NOIR IN THIS 2017 VOLNAY FROM DOMAINE GEORGES GLANTENAY AT $39.95...WHAT A BARGAIN!!

"A more elegant and equally fresh nose combines notes of red cherry, spicy and discreet floral elements. There is even better vibrancy to the delineated middle weight flavors that exude a subtle minerality on the clean, focused and sneaky long finish." (BH)

Producer note:
The young Guillaume Glantenay, and his sister Sarah, professed themselves to be "very happy with both the quality and the quantity and particularly so after the disaster that was 2016 in terms of yields. In fact 2017 is the first year since we started in 2013 where we had a full crop. We began picking the whites on the 30th of August and then attacked the reds on the 31st. In 2016 we did 3 weeks of vatting but in 2017 it was extended by another week to make a full month. The vinifications were soft but in a vintage where there were good yields, we wanted to be sure to obtain the materials that were there without pushing the extractions to be sure not to have wines with bitter tannins. As to the wines, they are elegant, pure and particularly well-balanced yet they should have no difficulty aging for the medium-term." As I have already pointed out to readers, this is a domaine to watch carefully as this is a team with talent and the vineyards to make some great wines. I was told that the 2017s would be bottled without fining or filtration.(BH)
