    January 20, 2019 - Superb. Elegant, salty with red fruits, earthy. Perfect balance. A little more tannins than I was expecting but it gives great structure to the wine. This is stunning wine.

    January 8, 2018 - It's tasty. Very fragrant, pure and red berries. Drinking nicely now. Perhaps a bit further developed than I would have thought.

    July 5, 2017 - Appearance: Bright and clear, it is light ruby in color, with slight garnet rim and legs.
    Nose: Clean, with medium intensity aromas of red fruit of red cherries, raspberry and strawberry, floral notes of violet, maturity notes of mushroom and tobacco, animal notes of game. The wine is developing.
    Palate: Dry with medium (+) acidity, the wine has medium tannin of ripe and silky texture, medium alcohol, medium (-) body and medium intensity flavors of red fruit of raspberry, cherries and fruit cake, maturity notes of tobacco, oak notes of toast. The wine has a medium finish.
    Conclusion: Very good quality Volnay with a reasonably intense nose showing decent complexity, it is juicy, with ripe red fruit characters dominating but also observing nice development, with the palate showing a lively acidity, similarly juicy flavors of fair concentration and length on the finish. It is ready to drink now and can maintain for about 2-3 years.
