The Clos des Chênes is the king of the cellar in 2015: a wine of grand cru quality, made from the fruit of low yielding old vines. Notes of black cherry, elderberry, woodsmoke, dark chocolate and subtle roast squab are the prelude to a seamlessly complete wine that reveals filigree minerality and profound depth and dimension. A triumph from the singularly self-effacing Thierry Glantenay. William Kelley - Decanter

The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes was showing just a slight reduction on the nose, though it develops nicely in the glass, yielding raspberry coulis, cranberry, cola and light fennel scents with time. The palate is powerful on the entry with plenty of lightly spiced black fruit, tinged with earl grey and minerals, the latter becoming more conspicuous towards the finish. There is a subtle sour cherry edginess that lends this Volnay complexity and personality - it will be fascinating to revisit once in bottle. Neal Martin – The Wine Advocate
