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...

Domaine Vincent Bouzereau, Les Champans
Decanter average score:
17.25pts/20 (90+/100pts)
Individual judge’s scores: Michael Schuster 16.5 Steven Spurrier 18 Sebastian Thomas 17.5
Very good concentration of scented, red summer fruits on the nose which has a gently sweet air. Ripe fruit very much gripped by new oak tannins, but it’s both fleshy and precise with great vigour, vibrant fruit and acidity that drives the fruit through to a long finish. Will evolve well.
