Description

Good red-ruby color. Musky aromas of wild brambly berries and rocky minerality; seems clearly less evolved than the Clos des Angles. Very rich and chewy but with excellent rocky energy and sappiness to the wild berry and licorice flavors. Just a touch of torrefaction here. Finishes tactile and very long, with dusty tannins. These grapes were picked at 12.2% potential alcohol. -International Wine Cellar

The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru En Chevret is located between Champans and Santenots-les-Milieu and contains 50% whole cluster fruit like the Clos des Angles. It comes from two parcels: 40 and 60 years old, the former usually de-stemmed. The bouquet is very well-defined but introspective despite rigorous coaxing. It reluctantly gives up attractive briary and boysenberry scents. The palate is much more expressive with that boysenberry component flourishing on the entry. There is good minerality here, the finish almost foursquare but with impressive tension and length. This is quite a serious Volnay, perhaps a little Pommard-like in style, and deserves 3-5 years aging in bottle. – Neal Martin – 30.12.13
