Domaine Rene Monnier, Clos des Chenes, Vonlay 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010


Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Both ripe and woody to smell; fairly full, and with a clear ripe fruit core here within a fresh acidity and a fine, firm tannin. Generous in flavour, ripe and ample, long across the palate in a fairly extractive style, but clear 1er Cru class here and good length too. Rich, generous, slightly muscular, long in aftertaste, and will need plenty of time to mellow and harmonise. Good quality, long term.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Very deep young colour with purple rim. Black cherry and black berry fruits on the nose, slightly exotic touch from ripeness and oak, rich and broad on the palate with very good ripeness of fruit. Not quite the length expected, but very good ripeness for the mid-term.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Volatile, quite unpleasant fermentation aromas, confirmed on the palate, with hints of blackcurrant fruit. Tannins medium and quite present. Raw, lacks finesse, and wood noticeable on finish.
