Professional Reviews


A cool, pure and elegant array is composed by notes of essence of plum, black cherry and violet. The racy, intense and even more mineral-driven medium weight flavors also possess fine volume as well as very good delineation while displaying excellent persistence on the youthfully austere finale. Lovely stuff. (89-92)/2023+


Vinous: Stephen Tanzer

Palish, moderately saturated red. Riper on the nose than the village Volnay, offering scents of black cherry and spices. Also juicier and more penetrating in the mouth, conveying good subtle intensity and salinity to its flavors of cherry, minerals and soil. Bitouzet notes that this wine has same pH as its 2015 sibling: 3.46. I find it less exuberant than that wine but every bit as precise. Dusty tannins reach the front teeth on the long back end.
