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...

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.
