The Volnay Villages (£26.25) is floral and taffeta textured, drink 2015–2018; Volnay 1er Cru from Pitures and Mitans (£30) is fuller, richer with better depth and structure, 2015–2021; Clos des Angles (£35.42) more briary on the nose, spicy and serious, 2016–2023; Fremiet (£37.50) is lively with lovely supple fruit and firm tannins from old vines, 2016–2026; Caillerets (£44.17) from youngish vines on a higher elevation has lovely spicy ripeness, smooth and rich yet well structured, 2016–2026; Champans (£44.17) is vibrant, a touch exotic, firmer, more reserved yet very elegant, 2017–2029; Taillepieds (£44.17) shows Volnay’s lissom texture over broad fruit and lots of energy, 2016–2028; Clos des Ducs (£65.83) has finesse, beautiful texture and length, 2017–2030.
