Nicolas Rossignol is the fifth generation of winegrowers in Volnay. Having completed oenology studies in Beaune, he worked in Volnay, Châteauneuf du Pape, South Africa and Bordeaux, before returning to the family estate, Rossignol Jeanniard. In 1997, he purchased three hectares spread over Volnay, Pommard, Beaune, Aloxe- Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. Fast forward to 2016, and the total vineyard has increased to 17 hectares. Nicolas makes wine from his own estate, as well as from his fathers' vineyard, which he now runs, bottling everything under the name Nicolas Rossignol. Nicolas seeks perfection in his vineyard and his wines. His style is one of complexity, concentration and breeding, classic Burgundy.
A mild winter and mild spring were followed by a warm summer, resulting in early flowering. Exceptionally hot July temperatures slowed ripening down, but rains and a cooler August eased drought pressures and allowed ripening to continue. A fine September resulted in excellent quality fruit. 2015 is an outstanding vintage.
The Vineyard Clos des Angles is situated in the heart of Volnay and its name is derived from its location, between two roads. The soil is a mix of brown-grey clay and chalk with white pebbles. The plot starts at the top of a basin, attracting the heat of the sun during the day and conserving it at night. This helps create softer and silkier tannins. The vine age varies, some are 65 years old, while others were replanted approximately 20 years ago. The vineyard is managed using sustainable farming methods, respecting the biodiversity of the soil and the environment in which the vines are grown. No synthetic weed killers are used and influence is taken from the biodynamic movement, with pruning taking place according to the lunar calendar.
The grapes were harvested once they had reached the optimal phenolic ripeness. Fermentation lasted approximately three weeks. The wine was then aged on its fine lees before a delayed malolactic fermentation took place - after approximately eight months, imparting more complexity and structure to the resulting wine. Following a philosophy of minimum intervention, this wine was not racked, fined or filtered.
