Reviews 95 points Wine Advocate "The 2016 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs is a stunning young wine, unwinding in the glass with a beautiful but reserved bouquet of rose petal, candied violet, red cherries, plums, dark chocolate and hints of the savory bass-notes to come. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with lovely purity of fruit, dense but velvety tannins and a bright animating line of acidity, concluding with a penetrating and precise finish...(WK)" 95 points Vinous "Bright, deep red. Deeper-pitched on the nose than the young 2017, offering aromas of cherry, blueberry, menthol and licorice and an impression of medicinal reserve. A juicy, spicy, impeccably balanced midweight with outstanding clarity and cut and an enticing touch of sweetness leavened by spiciness. Plenty of tannin/acid spine here to frame and carry the fruit through a long, rising, floral finish. This tightly wound beauty shows the sappy quality of the vintage's better examples and should be long-lived. (ST)" 19 points Jancis Robinson "Some glowing ruby. Already wonderfully complex and broad and glowing. Kerpow!!! So intense and multifaceted. Opening up nicely. Seriously noble and upright without being remotely austere. (JR)" 94 points John Gilman "...The bouquet is superb, offering up a fine constellation of black cherries, black plums, raw cocoa, complex soil tones, woodsmoke and spicy new oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with ripe tannins, tangy acids and fine length and grip on the nascently complex finish...(JG)"
Ridiculously low 2-day shipping. Add to cart to calculate cost.
