Critic Notes

The 2012 Volnay Village comes from several parcels on the lower reaches of the Volnay appellation on deep clay soils towards the Meursault side, with one patch towards Clos des Chenes rich in limestone. The nose is perfumed with red cherries, minerals and saline scents – well-defined and opening all the time in the glass. The palate is medium-bodied with a sumptuous, fleshy opening. This Volnay has fine volume, combining the structure given by the clay soils and the acidity/minerality from the limestone. This is commendable village cru and I suspect that is will age well.

Market Outlook January 2013
A look back on 2012 2012 has been an eventful year in the wine trade. In many ways, it has been a difficult twelve months: tough economic conditions, falling prices for investment grade wines and a tortuous en primeur Bordeaux campaign have all made buying and selling wine more challenging than usual. The flipside of turbulence, however, is opportunity and ...
