My first bottle of this in 4 years. For the money ($34 a bottle a few years back) it is an enjoyable glass of wine. Deep Burgundy hue with an earthy, but slighted muted bouquet. While light-bodied, the fruit was still ripe and tasty on the palate. No real length on the finish. I would drink this up over the next year.
Popped and poured. Color ruby center and edges totally bricking. Nose mostly secondary with light cherry and more spice. On palate this is ok, but mostly thin and not really interesting. Dunno if this is just tired from sitting on the shelf since release or not so great from the poor vintage. None of the dark fruit described by recent taster so suspect the former.
Quite a dark purple at its core, medium body. Sowing some maturing notes now, but the fruit is still sweet and clear, darker cherries with a little soft spice and some forest floor. Good concentration for a village wine, decent finish. Drinking well, just a little dryness to finish.

(Potel Nicolas Volnay Vieilles Vignes) An assemblage from 13 different parcels. Fresh and complex nose, despite being quite tight. On the palate, a sweet entry that's wide and interesting. You notice the structure before the texture but then there's a really defining extra edge of complexity in the mid-palate. It might not be the greatest VV cuvée from this house, but it's very good.
