flagBurgundy / France

Tasted blind at the annual "Burgfest" tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru les Santenots du Milieu from Henri Boillot was showing just a little VA on the nose, though not too severe and it give its red berry, cranberry and redcurrant scents a lift a kick up the backside. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, "stringy" tannin; it is quite saline in the mouth and slightly conservative, foursquare but a nicely controlled finish. Fine, if not best in show.
