Domaine Vincey La Premiere 2014 magnum
Disgorged in January 2020 with 3g/ltr this wine shows a beautiful light straw gold and tiny bubbles in the glass. The nose is initially playful, light and fruity but with this serious oaky dance in the background creating this stern bitter note. The palate, initially goes broad with the oak, but then focuses on the white fleshy apple and lemon right on the tip of the tongue. Then the nose draws you back in with glorious notes of pine nut, baked pineapple and oyster shell. The oak does such a fantastic job at bringing the playful fruit forward without overpowering everything and creates a wonderfully layered and complex experience.
The Vincey family have been winemakers for 8 generations but it wasn't until Quentin joined in 2009 that production took the form that it is today. They work with 7 hectares in Oger, Mesnil and Chouilly and, since Quentin's joining have removed any pesticides or herbicides. The modern production of wines see 12 months of oak vinification and only vintage wines made. They have been working with the biodynamic principles for over three years. An exquisite winemaker who creates a wonderful fullness of fruit and layered complexity in their wines. Truly one to investigate as their wines will soon become the stuff of legend...
