Xavier Monnot Clos des Chenes, Volnay Premier Cru, France 2015
Regular price$ 81.00
"The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes has a sensual and pure bouquet with black cherries, blueberry and violets aromas, well defined and seeming to "billow" from the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin and crisp acidity, the good structure here with a grippy, almost Pommard-like on the slightly savory finish. There is certainly good potential here, pipping 2014 in terms of quality."
92 Pts Neal Martin, Vinous
"Macerated cherry and berry flavors are allied to a dense wall of tannins in this muscular Volnay. Still, the fruit lingers on the finish, leaving a lasting, sweet impression."
