1 4.5 5
The 2010s showed purity and austerity in our panel tasting, but some producers strugged to achieve full ripeness. While not a great vintage, our panel said it's a good one to buy - but with care. See the top 13 Volnay premier cru 2010s here...

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.
