The 2010 Volnay Les Chevrets emerges from the glass with a sweet, perfumed bouquet that melds into expressive dark fruit. This is a fairly immediate Volnay that should drink well with minimum cellaring despite its considerable energy and fleshiness. Floral notes add lift on the refined, chiseled finish. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. ||Henri Boillot turned out a superb set of 2010 reds. Best of all, readers won’t have to shell out a fortune to enjoy them, as a number of the more modestly priced wines far exceed the quality of their respective appellations. Yields came in at 20-22 hectoliters per hectare, a 40% decrease over the more typical production of 35 hectoliters per hectare. Boillot began harvesting on September 29 and ended on October 7, among the latest, if not the latest, to finish picking. Fermentations lasted about 29 days on average. Boillot has augmented his holdings with 5 hectares of vineyards that came online in 2010. I tasted all of these wines at Boillot’s cellars in Volnay. Boillot told me he plans to have his new facility in the Champ Lins section of Meursault fully operational for both whites and reds by summer 2012. Wine Advocate.February, 2012
