Pretty on the nose. Subtle, perfumed, balanced, hint of oak. Still very primary. Lovely balance, grace and finesse on the palate. Very long finish. Overall, this is really classy. Pretty, great balance. Hard to resist today, but will surely get better with age.
Beautiful deep ruby color. Fairly restrained but pure nose of spicy cherries and minerals. I am immediately struck by the power and weight of this Volnay which has delicious minerally cherry fruit and a wonderful silky texture. There is great balance and strong mid-palate presence giving the impression of a "fat" yet "structured" wine that is tightly coiled now but seems perfectly poised for aging. Enjoyable now for it's purity and freshness but this will need many years to evolve. 93+
