Reviews 94-96 points Wine Advocate "The brilliant 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes offers up an incipiently complex bouquet of dark berry fruit, orange rind, plums, woodsmoke, dark chocolate and rich soil tones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, reserved and muscular, with excellent depth and concentration, structured around an ample endowment of powdery tannin and succulent acids. The finish is long and nicely defined. (WK)" 92-95 points Burghound "A brooding and reserved nose very reluctantly displays its relatively deeply pitched aromas of highly complex poached plum, dark cherry and whiff of warm earth. As is always the case, the concentrated and powerful flavors are considerably bigger with excellent richness and muscle where evident minerality adds a sense of lift to the mouth coating and youthfully austere finish that goes on and on.
