This vineyard was not affected by the frost. It has a very intense blackberry and Morello cherry-scented bouquet with hints of iodine and incense developing with time. I adore the controlled opulence here. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannin but less rigid than the Mitans, with a touch of salinity, a light marine influence toward the finish. This has very good potential, but it will reward those with patience to cellar 4 or 5 years.

The mouth feel of the medium-bodied and overtly mineral-driven flavors is at once refined but powerful with excellent underlying tension suffusing the moderately austere, firm and built-to-age finish. This should be first-rate in time but patience is required.

The palate is medium-bodied with a crunchy red fruit note on the entry, quite grippy in the mouth. I find the finish a little "bony" and requiring more flesh. If I did not know this was a Volnay I would have put it down as a Pommard. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy. -- Neal Martin
