Domaine Jacques Prieur, Santenots, Vonlay 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Dense and ripe to smell; abundant fruit within a firm Santenots texture. Ripe, spicy, complex, very firmly chewy and long term in style. Good length, but needing years!

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Deep red, some maturity on rim. Very attractive nose of ripe summer fruits, black fruits dominant, fine expression of cassis and black cherries on the palate and a touch of spice from the oak, which is well-blended in. Lots of depth and lots of fruit and a very good expression of this vineyard in the Meursault AOC, a wine with great depth and charm and a very good future.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Heavily wooded red fruit nose, thick and slightly stewed strawberry fruit. Very woody on the mid-palate, and these wood tannins tend to dominate the finish, although the fruit gives them a good run until the end.
