About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2010 Volnay Clos des Chenes bursts onto the palate with heady concoction of mineral-infused red fruit, crushed rocks, white flowers and white pear. The 2010 is nervous and taut from start to finish. The wine's energy should allow it to age nicely for years. Chalky notes support the articulate, focused finish. This is a striking wine.
