“The 2019 Volnay Champans 1er Cru comes from a young parcel planted 33 years ago. It has a very well defined bouquet with predominantly red berry fruit, laced with briary and crushed stone, later a touch of rose petal. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, the same structure as the Santenots, perhaps with a little more spiciness and edge. Again, superb length and precision here.” Excellent. 93 pts.
