Critic Scores, Reviews & Descriptions

93 WS / 91 WA

Intense aromas of black cherry, pomegranate and tamarind mark this juicy red. Smooth, with well-integrated tannins lending a dusty feel as the finish plays out. Already harmonious, this should develop well over the next two decades. Best from 2022 through 2036. 375 cases made, 175 cases imported. — BS, Wine Spectator

The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes, half from vines planted in 1936 and the other half from vines planted in 1978, has a very floral and expressive bouquet with blueberry, cassis and violet aromas. This is quite powerful but it has a little more delineation than the other reds. The palate is medium-bodied with a dab of licorice on the entry, firm but fine tannins and a pleasing edginess toward the sustained finish. Excellent. Drink 2020-2032. –Neal Martin, The Wine Advocate
