Faiveley Volnay Premier Cru Santenots 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

92-94 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Bright, full, deep red. Crushed cherry, raspberry, minerals, cocoa powder and coriander on the vibrant nose. Sweet, fine-grained and subtly powerful, with terrific inner-mouth perfume and lift. Wonderfully classy Volnay, finishing bright, suavely tannic and very long. Consultant Bernard Hervet did a light extraction here, and believes that this cuvee got a bit too much pigeage in 2008. (Jan/Feb 2012)
