"Here the less expressive nose flirts with reduction though a wisp of red berry fruit is discernible so I would suggest decanting this if you're game to try a bottle young. Otherwise the succulent and nicely rich flavors are blessed with abundant amounts of dry extract that coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the youthfully austere and sneaky long finish." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
"This is aromatically similar to the straight Volnay villages but with slightly more complexity and a broader range of spice elements. There is once again very good punch to the racy medium-bodied flavors that offer solid minerality on the impressively long and slightly firmer finish that deliver notably better depth. This is an impressive effort for its level and recommended." - Allen Meadows, Burghound
