Domaine Nicolas Rossignol 2018 Pinot Noir Bourgogne, Burgundy
Nicolas Rossignol began his winemaking adventure in 1994 at 20 years old. He worked the family domaine while going to winemaking school. Upon graduation, the fireball of a young man took off to see and learn more about his beloved winemaking. From Burgundy to Ardeche, to the southern Rhone Valley, to South Africa then Bordeaux and finally back to his home in Volnay Burgundy. He makes all the wines for the family estate now and offers a broad range of polished but classically structured wines. This little Bourgogne is a true insight into what he has to offer. The fruit here is generous but by no means clunky or showy. Mid palate you get mushroom and underbrush that mingles perfectly with red cherry and fine dusty tannin.
