France 2013 – Northern Rhone; 4/17/2013-4/19/2013 (Ampuis): Richer red fruit nose with underbrush and hints of spice. On the palate sweeter/richer red fruits with a beautifully silky mouthfeel wrapped in nice acidity. The finish is long and this went perfectly with our lamb. This was very nice but definitely on the fuller/bigger side of Volnay and lacks a bit of elegance that the village is known for. Good to drink now but there’s no rush and in fact this may even improve with another 5-7+ years. Excellent. 91+
