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

Still some dark fruit and secondary notes. Blackberry, Gauloises, leather and acid. Much left to give and delicious.

Needed a good 90 minutes to start opening. Red fruit and floral, mild spice. Lovely wine.

Big and rich. Deeper than many Volnay wines. Still closed but great depth and richness. Lovely balance.

Rich, ripe and many years ahead. An unctuous Volnay arguably displaying more vintage character than site.

I do love Volnay--my desert Island Burgundy region. This one didn't have the best cork, but still had that pretty and zingy cherry kirsch aroma that hits the pleasure center in my brain.
