    December 2, 2013 - Really pretty Volnay, and a steal if you bought it through the Premier Cru sale. This has the best features of the 2009 vintage, with its plush, fleshy, open-knit presence without any hard edges. It has cashmere-soft tannins running through it, making the texture more soft than slick - this is already past its primary gloss, and the flavors are in a very perfumed, floral place moreso than any juicy fruit, although it does have a nice blue berry tinge. This is super easy to drink and perfectly put-together.
