Volnay premier cru 2010: panel tasting results

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...

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.
