Greatness defined. Deft balance of muscle and elegance. 02 bones are made of sturdy stuff.

Full red. Aromas of dark cherry, smoky minerals and sexy soil tones. Very sweet and broad on entry, then suave and nicely delineated in the mid-palate, displaying complex saline soil tones and cherry and dark berry fruit flavors. This savory Volnay finishes with building toothcoating tannins and terrific chocolatey length. Needs time, but this wine strikes me as more harmonious than the excellent 2013 version was at the same stage. (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, Mar 2017)

From the Stone Barns Cellar and from the great D’Angerville, great intensity and focus showing plenty of red fruits, vibrant energy, hints of top soil and a cool minerality. Finishes wonderfully long and alluring. In a terrific place.

Ample, creamy and sensual in the glass, with soft, silky tannins that add raciness. Hints of lavender, spice and mint develop with air, but it is the wine’s total finesse that steals the day. An especially romantic, alluring expression of Volnay....

Simple - rustic (not refined) - pure red berry and spice with an acid thread melding it all together

Recreation of “Judgement of Paris II” blind Pinot tasting with the addition of a bonus wine from the Central Otago:
medium ruby • very shy nose, slightly herbaceous, moderate amount of new oak • high acidity, very tannic, 13.5% ABV • overall a bit angular and disjointed at this point, would cellar for several years before approaching again
