Grown on white marl at the northern (Pommard) end of Volnay, so placed last in tasting order for its additional tannins. Indeed, it tastes midway between a Volnay and a Pommard. Fine red crimson colour. The nose betrays a light reduction. This has impressive substance, good acidity, light blood orange notes perhaps from the reduction. Good persistence.

The 2019 Volnay Les Pitures 1er Cru is perhaps missing the same cohesion as the Les Caillerets or Taillepieds on the nose. There is an attractive marine/oyster shell influence at play, though it comes across a bit subdued at present. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins, good grip with a masculine, structured finish that is very tight and laconic at the moment. Somehow, a bit aloof? (Drink between 2023-2038).
