2019 is terrific in Volnay and this has it all. What village wines should aspire to. Huge stanky nose of sweet cherries with a lipstick like intensity, rocky minerals and some nice florals. So expressive and has that 19 richness. Palate is rich and expressive with terrific freshness and tons of rile cherries. Ready to go on p and p but air will be this wine’s friend. So juicy and lush. Really terrific acidity. Lush, succulent and tangy as well.

A lovely volnay, plush, generous and juicy. Cherries and some cooler purple fruit and autumnal tones. Finished is nicely structured and mineral with a refined powdered limestone texture

Full of fruit on the nose. Big big cherries. Blast of minerals. Beautiful fruit and energy. So sappy and deep but also tangy and fresh. Intense minerality but perfectly aligned with the fruit. Lovey depth and sweetness.

Lovely stuff. My first 18 red burg in bottle. Outrageous nose of perfectly ripened mid season/late seasons red and black cherries. Loads of earth and freshness from intense minerality. Nose is very very giving. Just outrageously fruity and like a puppy licking one’s face. Can smell this all day for the vividness of the aromas. And the purity and the depth. Amazing palate. Sweet sweet fruit. Concentrated and deep with oodles of fruit and big, juicy and ripe tannins. Awesome freshness and purity. Terrific inner mouth aromas. Long finish with accents of black cherry and kirsch. Likely needs maybe 2-3 years or a few hours open to be more expensive on the palate. All there.

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.

This is the Volnay. Earthy and deep when opened but lightened and gains flowers and spice with a few hours of air. Very well built for entry level Burg and a real pleasure to drink now. Imagine it will really sing in five years.
