Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Light, fresh, fragrant nose; elegantly balanced, Volnay style wine, sweet cored within a fine, firm tannin; ripe fruited, long and complex, with a clear 1er Cru complexity, and fine, scented length. Long term, but very good.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Quite good colour, mature rim. Fine, sweet summer berries on the nose and good summer fruits on the palate. Has freshness, but still a little greenness there and this might dominate as the wine ages.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Muted, ripe red fruit nose, slightly stewed, with some woody aromas. Thick, juicy fruit in mid-palate, smoothed out by new wood. Medium, fine tannin and a good finish marred by drying oak tannins.
