Soaring nose. Sour cherries, Earth, mineral, spice, bramble, mint and really aromatic. After 30 minutes. Stunning. Gorgeously wild and also refined. Palate is very juicy with terrific balance. Ripe and juicy tannins provide structure. Lovely fruit, freshness and minerality and definitely built for the long haul. Serious wine with major sap and depth. — a day ago

2012. The nose is all oak. But the palate is very pretty and supple quiet red fruit with a hint of tannin for structure. I like this wine. — 10 days ago

This was just signing. With no oak in her vinification the fruit is the star of the show. Thank you again Claudine. — 15 days ago

I love this wine. What a disgusting value. Big fruit on the nose but haunting and elegant like Volnay should be. Spice and mint as well. Suggests a ton of depth. Sinewy, floral and feral as well. Elegant, sweet and deep with stunning purity, texture and velvety tannins. Killer. Amazing sweetness to this. — 5 days ago

Domaine Marquis d'Angerville

Champans Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Recreation of “Judgement of Paris II” blind Pinot tasting with the addition of a bonus wine from the Central Otago:
medium ruby • very shy nose, slightly herbaceous, moderate amount of new oak • high acidity, very tannic, 13.5% ABV • overall a bit angular and disjointed at this point, would cellar for several years before approaching again

Tannic and grippy like race skis. Tasted like it was 3 years old not 23! — 12 days ago

Still quite primary and coiled but lovely cool fruit. Good depth and minerality. Needs time to strut its stuff but very good. — 2 days ago

Santenots Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

Really expressive deciduous leaf... kicking up the ground cover in the fall. Fruits are all pomegranate husk, underripe red plum. Great savory elements. A slight suggestion of brown mushroom. Faint considerations of khaki pipe tobacco and cigar box. Really damn pretty. Highly recommened. — 4 days ago
