Volnay, Côte De Beaune

François Protheau

Volnay 1962

3 May 2018

Needed the Durand for this bottle, but that is at home in MA, many thousands of miles away. Nose is dusty but still fresh. 😁

Color of an old brick. Nose of saddle leather, ripe cherry, mineral. Palate is very bright, acidity is screaming still, actually improving and not fading; dried cherry, wet slate/minerals. Crazy for 56 years young, I'm going to say this wine easily has 10-20 years left.

62s are amazing. 62 Lambrays is one of the best wines I've ever had.

Still young but has the stuff. Nose is mostly closed. Palate is rich cherry with licorice. Lovely texture. Cherry Licquor finish. Great acidic balance. — 10 days ago

Awesome bottle, even cooler vineyard site, it really sticks out in Volnay like a beacon with the white, stoney soils. We tasted the '11/'13/'17 with Réyane last Friday.

Friday night is feeling alright. This is perfectly in the pocket. Mid weight beauty, sweet crimson fruit, dried cherries and soy infused mushroom. The perfect companion to Waygu skirt steak and making my daughter watch Rain Man and Good Will Hunting. — 5 days ago

This is a Haaavad bar? I thought there’d be equations and shit on the wall. Love that movie!

High quality throughout, the wine is showing both provenance, and structure with developing complexity in the glass and a long balanced finish. Drinks well, and there’s no need to wait, even though it will continue to develop complexity for another five years or so. — 11 days ago

Initially a little stemmy, but fruit evolved over an hour in the glass, beautiful wine, love Volnay.

We enjoyed (2) 2008's last night, both still youthful and very enjoyable. I think the vintage has promise.

WOW. Loudonville. I went to school in Troy. Don’t remember seeing any good burgundy over that 4 year period. Mostly MD 50/50 😃

Ha, yes... We bring these wines with us, they don't exist at the Country Club.

From magnum. This shows more fruit and rounder tannin than 750s I tried recently. — 14 days ago
