At first rather shy... But then a generous and sublime nose. Red fruit of rosehip and raspberries. Good depth with chalkstone minerality. Developed notes of sandalwood,sSpices and a beginning meatiness. Medium body, harmonious, spicy palate. Smooth and grippy. Ripe tannins and good length. Succulent and juicy with a nice liquorice finish. This wine is in a very good place now. Tasted half-blind this was identified as one of the three Volnay's.
Wow, this was not what I expected (or hoping for). Not a bad wine, just very forward with tart fruit and a medium long finish. Not balanced for my taste as it was simply too fruit driven without a ton nuance. I'm certainly not against fruit but I guess I was looking for something more earthy and Volnay-like.
