Medicinal black cherry on the reticent nose. Concentrated and very primary, conveying a strong impression of energy to the flavors of black cherry, raspberry, licorice and menthol. Very pulpy wine, like chewing on grapes. A powerful rather than elegant style of Volnay (this fruit was picked at a high 13% potential alcohol), with the very long finish showing a firm tannic spine that Bitouzet says is typical of this wine. Very impressive for the year and built for a slow evolution in bottle. -- Stephen Tanzer

There is fine richness to the delicious and sleekly muscular flavors that exhibit an attractive stoniness on the balanced, dusty and long. Like the Clos des Chênes this is a classically styled Pitures that should amply reward up to a decade of cellar time.
