The 2008 Volnay Champans shows lovely juiciness in its fruit. The aromatics open up beautifully on the mid-palate. Subtle, elegant and perfumed throughout, the Champans shows its full explosiveness and structure only on... The 2008 Volnay Champans shows lovely juiciness in its fruit. The aromatics open up beautifully on the mid-palate. Subtle, elegant and perfumed throughout, the Champans shows its full explosiveness and structure only on the building finish. Floral notes add lift on the close. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.

(88-90) Lafon noted that in 2008, only 3 ½ barrels were produced whereas in 2009 there were 11 barrels. This is both aromatically more complex and finer with lovely red and blue pinot fruit and warm earth notes blending into rich and relatively concentrated middle weight flavors that possess a round and supple mid-palate and while there is slightly better phenolic ripeness, this too is not quite fully ripe though it's quite close.
