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...

Attractive, perfumed, ripe nose of summer fruits. Firmly tannic but plenty of ripe fruit to back it up. Good precision and depth, with spicy oak notes and an appealing texture. Fine minerality with good structure and length; should age well.
