Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1996

This was great tonight. Still bright and clear after 23 years. Signs of secondary notes, but the structure has not broken down. — 4 days ago

Volnay Pinot Noir 2015

Been trying to find this wine and find what the hype was all about. Not sure if a style for everyone but but it was very fruit forward with velvet (rather than silky) tannins. Fresh acidity following black cherries, blackberries and flowers on the nose. Could use a couple more years in the cellar but already a crowd pleaser. — 24 days ago

Same here. Yet to try Thibaud's wines

Domaine Latour-Giraud

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir

A beguiling nose dominated by...liquid sandalwood (???) and cedar oil. With air, other spices seem to be represented, but again in a juicy and not the least dried or spice powder way: rosemary, cardamom....Roses lurking below as I nose it out. Something is fruit here but it’s hard to separate out. Good texture on the palate with more dark cherry fruit coming up mid palate. Classic spicy volnay finish. Transparent and correct; not the least bit rustic — 18 days ago

What a huge 2015 success. Lovely nose of big cherry, cassis, crushed stones and so much intense minerality. Floral as well with lavender and mashed violets. Intense and gorgeous. Palate is just a fruit bomb. Amazingly concentrated yet elegant as well with huge rich cherry fruit that is so sweet and gorgeously defined. Wonderful acidity and freshness. Best showing yet. — 18 days ago

The new style of D’Angerville, more finesse and fruit. Tannins are already well integrated and the silky mouthfeel is all pleasure. — 18 days ago

@E & K G Might be back to Burgundy in 2020, we did a few days in Paris last year on the tail end of our trip, it's a little too busy for me, TBD on a return visit. But I will keep this in mind for sure.
