There is excellent volume to the caressing and palate coating flavors that are refined yet powerful on the very serious, structured and built-to-age finale. This is excellent but patience strongly recommended.

This is quite a firm, grippy, savoury style of Volnay with lots of sap and grip, some appealing floral scents, red cherry and bramble fruit and a combination of 50% whole bunches and 30% new wood.

The well-balanced palate is tannic on the entry. The brisk, terse finish indicates that it is in for the long haul. I like the salinity here. A rather uncompromising but satisfying/challenging Volnay. -- Neal Martin

Medium to full-bodied, firm and muscular, the raw materials are promising, but the wine was a little inscrutable.- WK

This has a vivid deep dark colour and significant class on the bounding, abundantly fruited nose. There is some sweetness of oak behind, and a lovely harmonious finish.
