Vol­nay 1er Cru

VertdeVin - - Front Page -

The nose is el­e­gant, aro­matic, fine and rel­a­tively con­cen­trated. It re­veals notes of mocha, woody notes and slight notes of juicy plum, cherry as­so­ci­ated with hints of red fruits and slight notes of cho­co­late, spices as well as a dis­creet hint of Sichuan pep­per and flow­ers. The wine needs to be de­canted (carafe). As wine is de­canted, the nose opens up slowly. The palate is fruity, el­e­gant, smooth, juicy, well-bal­anced and of­fers a beau­ti­ful def­i­ni­tion, pre­ci­sion, gour­man­dize as well as ten­sion. In the mouth this wine ex­presses notes of blue­berry cream, black­berry and juicy red fruits (straw­berry, cherry) as­so­ci­ated with dis­creet hints of small red berries, liquorice, toasted oak and cho­co­late. Tan­nins are fin and well-built. Good length. Nice po­ten­tial!

Score : 16.5
