"A slightly more deeply pitched nose combines notes of both red and dark currant along with an abundance of warm earth, humus and underbrush nuances. The sleek, intense and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors possess fine underlying tension on the chalky, youthfully austere and firm finale that delivers excellent length. Fine quality here." Allen Meadows' Burghound.com 89-92 points Drink 2024-39
The 2020 Volnay Village opens in the glass with notes of plums and sweet red berries mingled with peonies and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, deep and perfumed, with lively acids and powdery, melting tannins, it's beautifully vibrant and refined.
The 2020 Volnay Village is completely aged in used barrel. It has a transparent nose with lifted red cherry and crushed strawberry fruit with an underlying tertiary scent. The palate is more expressive than the aromatics with juicy ripe tart red cherries, quite citric in style with orange rind and a touch of bitter lemon enlivening the finish. This should drink well for up to 15 years, possibly more.
