Volnay premier cru 2010: panel tasting results
Domaine Jean-Marc Bouley, Les Carelles
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, perfumed nose with attractive summer fruits. Fine, dry tannins, but plenty of premier cru finesse here. Long and gently sweet flavour, real class and complexity, with those elegantly balancing tannins and a fragrant, delicate appeal. This is a complete, lovely, classy Volnay.
