Volnay premier cru 2010: panel tasting results
Bouchard Père et Fils, Clos des Chênes
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Michael Schuster 17.5 Steven Spurrier 16.5 Sebastian Thomas 17.5
Appealing, fine, fresh strawberry and red cherry nose with earthy red fruits and a mineral edge. Fine concentration, density; expressive palate. Sweet and harmonious, this is aromatic, long to finish, with fine quality. Still youthfully austere.
