Smoking wine. I love 14 here. Vibrant nose. Lively and deeply fruited with a nice background of serious mineral. Super beautiful fruit. Really Volnay. Juicy and wonderfully pure with terrific fruit on the redder side. Big tannins but very elegant and long suggest a long life ahead. Beautiful wine. So balanced. So elegant. Classic. Revisit in 10 years. — 3 years ago
Great balance and aromatic nose. Wonderful Burgundy!! Great red cherry and red current flavors. Fantastic mineral notes. Fabulous wine! Worth the slight splurge from everyday wines. 2009 Vintage — 5 years ago
What a nose. Deep penetrating cherry. Mid season sappy cherries, tons of earth, stones, sous bois, gorgeous Champans symphony. Wow. Palate is grippy, pure, juicy with terrific structure. Sappy, icing on cake texture. Terrific freshness and amplitude on the palate. Concentrated with tiny berry fruit intensity and wonderful energy and freshness. Young but not inaccessible. — 7 months ago
Nose is a little toasty oak, blueberry juice, and blackberry.
Palate has oak-like cherry but very restrained on woody aspects, mid-season supermarket cherry, ripe plum, red raspberry, blackberry, TBD mineral, perfect acid levels!
I want to drink everything I have at this level, decanted for over one hour and this is absolutely perfect, nothing in the way of enjoyment. Pierrick Bouley is genius.
24hr Update: Nice giant (size-wise, not overpowering, the large sized berries have a more subtle flavor) blueberry flavor. Oak is more noticeable today, but not obtrusive to the red/blue fruits, a gentle compliment, perfect today. — 2 years ago
Chill it A bit and enjoy with basically anything. A great find and far better than ratings indicate. — 2 years ago
This is insanely great. In warm vintages I find Volnay and Pommard always delivery. 03/05/09/15. More warm vintages to come! Beautiful nose of tea leaf, earthy loamy minerality, gorgeous deep red cherry fruit that is almost exotic with a hint of licorice. Amazing fruit on this nose. But also really complex. Stunning. Fresh, elegant and beautifully balanced with ripe fruit but also cleansing acidity, some grippy tannin and big time depth. Amazingly fine tannins as it airs out. Like velvet. Stunning. I can’t believe how great this is. Will last 20 more years. — 2 years ago
