Domaine Francois Buffet, Champans, Vonlay 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Slightly herbal character to the nose and this is reflected on the palate too. Medium-full, slightly lean overall, fresh, barely ripe red fruit flavour of modest complexity and medium length. Slightly unripe and barely 1er Cru in quality; certainly needs time to mellow.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Good medium colour. Nose of red summer fruits and good natural concentration, quite sweet and supple. Good balance and length, a wine with Volnay elegance that will show well mid-term.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Some perfume, slighty muddy cooked nose. Juicy, dense, strawberry jam on palate, backed by fine tannins. Savoury and with good length, and a nice minerality comes through.
