Violet. Licorice. Carmelized red fruit. Sous bois. Smoke. Rendered bacon fat. Dried cork sped up the aging process. Still has acid to go for some time, but settled after a couple hours decanted. Limited length and structure.

Weak Volnay. Should have learned my lesson the first time.

Stunning. A touch reductive on opening, but clear and precise with a couple of moments off rest.

As billed... delicate and floral, but the finish pulls me back into what I imagine the Volnay soil tasting like...

This needs and hour or more out of the bottle, then back down to about 60 deg.

Ooh! Great funky nose, but kind of a letdown in the mouth - could be a California Pinot for half the price.
