Tasting Notes

The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des 60 Ouvrees has a very harmonious bouquet with blackberry, cassis and hints of sandalwood: very well defined at with great intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, tensile tannins. There is great energy here, very detailed with a pointed, citric finish that has more freshness than you need. Just as thrilling as it tasted in barrel. Neal Martin
