Bright red fruit. Not terribly complex; a little disjointed/off-balance. A bit of bite, with some lingering tannins. Probably at its peak at this point. Nice with a roasted chicken, but fruity enough to drink on its own.
Slow oxed for 3 hrs. Muted at first. Opened up quickly after pour. No bricking. Red fruits, salinity, soy on nose. Vibrant, nice red fruit, avg complexity, salivating,matched smoked ham risotto. Day 2, evolved towards darker fruit,gained some weight but still nice acidity and no sign of deterioration. Drinking well but just getting into secondary notes. Well worth price. See that Pitures is close to Pommard - need to try some of those soon to compare.

(Potel Nicolas Volnay Pitures) Medium ruby colour, right up to the rim. High toned violet notes overlaying redcurrant, raspberry and red cherry, plus a deeper aspect. The palate has perfect acidity and starts with a little spritz - though this fades. Medium concentrated fruit, but presented in a pure and very satisfying way. The smooth tannins only show on the finish which shows medium-plus length. Certainly a little more depth than than the previous three wines but not quite as juicily succulent. Definitely worth keeping.
