Volnay, Côte De Beaune

Louis Jadot

Clos de la Barre Monopole Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Nose has cherry & raspberry cordial notes (touch of alcohol), fresh violets, dried earth and mild oak toast.

Palate has lightly tannic cherry, blackberry, ripe black currant, medium barrel toast and fall leaves.

A solid weeknight bottle, decanted for about 90 minutes, but truth be told this wine could stand to wait another couple years in anticipation of concentration on the palate.

Les Caillerets Volnay 1er Cru Pinot Noir 2011

Delicious wine
It screams Volnay
Elegant, fragrant, feminine
Regardless the vintage the red fruit here is still a bit sour and juicy
Lovely complexity
Well done Monsieur Voillot

Domaine Louis Boillot et Fils

Les Epenottes Beaune Pinot Noir 2016

My first exposure to any of Louis Boillot’s wines was his Pommard at Pierre Gagnaire in Paris, and I have been on the hunt for his wines ever since. This Beaune is extremely floral, full of bright red fruit and has a slight smokiness to it. Reasonably priced for a 1er Cru Burgundy and drinking so well for its age. — 3 days ago

My love Volnay again

Santenots-du-Milieu
1995
Is it OK if I dare that it is still a few years too young
Great structure, lovely, but present tannin
So elegant, precise in its detsils
Long and an amazing aftertaste of a the sour cherry decorated with lots of elements
