Domaine Jacques Prieur, Champans
Decanter average score: 17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)

Lovely, scented strawberry fruit, with ripe black cherry and new wood. Rich fruit on the palate with chewy tannins, but plenty of matter and complexity. Excellent quality, quite exotic and rich for this vintage, with lovely texture and density, this is a strikingly seductive Volnay with a good future.
