Domaine Faiveley, Santenots, Vonlay 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010


Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Rich in youthful fruit to smell; generous fruit within a very firmly tannic frame. Chewy for Volnay, even as a Santenots – muscular style. Moderate complexity, good light length; fairly chewy overall and certainly needing time.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Good deep colour, some maturity on rim. Quite robust autumn berry fruits on the nose and quite robust flavours on the palate. A big wine, on the edge of being a bit stewed but has vigorous fruit and grip, but lacks the true elegance of Volnay.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Appealing, red fruit nose. Generous, sweet fruit in mouth with good density and fine texture, some minerality, some wood, and fine tannins on long finish.
