Volnay, Côte De Beaune

Mark Haisma

Paux Bois Volnay Pinot Noir 2015

I thought I reviewed this wine before but now can’t find it in the database. This is a more or less drink now wine. Cherry 🍒 plenty of acid well balanced and super nice to drink. There is some depth to the Wine. Chalky and wet stones. Perhaps cranberries. Can go for another 3 years or so. — 5 days ago

Domaine Jacques Prieur

Clos des Santenots Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2005

Amazing Volnay 1er Cru from Prieur. At 13 years, it has a good 5 more to go but even now, integrated and velvety mouth feel. Densely concentrated with much Berry and citrus (citrus?!). Shows a deep inky red color looking more like a brunello or Zin but indisputably an outstanding Cote de Beaune. — 18 days ago

Clos des Chênes Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 1966

Uncannily pure looking for such an old wine. Almost certainly topped up given the labels and cork. Plummy deep fruit, clarity and some high toned red stuff. Tart and focused. Very pretty with age but hard to escape that this is refreshed. — 20 days ago

Topped off and reconditioned as are most Remoissenet wines—and, I think, with younger juice. But they are tasty.

Domaine Michel Lafarge

Volnay Pinot Noir 2004

Impressions after initial decant were aromas of strawberry and other red fruits which is unusual for an aged Red Burgundy. This fruity note blew off after an hour. Some stalkiness and spiciness on palate. Barb said aromas of root vegetables like turnip. Light to medium weight which I have come to expect from Volnay particularly in an average vintage like 2004. This is the Clos des Chenes. Would love to try from a better year. — 11 days ago

En Chevret Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir

Not a bad Pinot @ £55 - most Pinot lovers will happily quaff (as did I) this but better wines are available for this kind of money 😁

Agreed on this. Latour produced great stuff on the low and high ends of their portfolio. The stuff in the middle is, in my opinion, as you described.

Nicolas Rossignol

Santenots Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2013

Belle surprise que ce vin. Très axée sur la cerise et des épices comme le poivre qui amènent même la famille à croire qu’on pourrait être en Cote-Rotie. Je ne l’étais pas mais je comprends les commentaires... c’est assurément plus facile quand on a vu l’étiquette ! Une bouteille très agréable d’un producteur loin de la spéculation — 14 days ago

Pitures Dessus Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2015

My first PYCM red and much like their laser focused whites, this was just so damn clean. Lots of lift and lively fruit and it should develop extremely well in the bottle. One to watch very closely. I wish that these wines were not 1) so difficult to source and 2) impossible to keep my hands off of.... — a month ago
