Vibrant Burgundy

We are having osso buco for dinner tonight, I thought a light red wine would go best with it.

Volnay Premier Cru 2004, Marquis d’Angerville

The fruit on the nose is very fresh and lively, it is very mineral too. It seems reasonably ripe for a vintage that wasn’t so hot, but not over-ripe, thankfully. The palate is also very fresh and mineral, with good acidity keeping it lively. There are detailed flavours here which persist on a delicate but reasonably long finish. It has the lightness of a good Volnay, but there is a reasonable amount of concentration to the flavours. This is a perfectly decent Burgundy, especially for those who like lighter styles, and I think it would be better in about five years or so.
