Volnay Burgundy Volnay J. Drouhin 1971

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little forest floor and sweet herb on the autumnal nose with hints of waxy red fruit and rhubarb slowly emerging on the high-toned nose. In the mouth this is fresh with a nice edge of bottle sweetness tempering the rather high acid. A bit spiky on the midpalate with a touch of acetic acid highlighting the sweet/sour nature of the wine. Nice gentle raspberry fruit fades quickly on the short finish. 84pts

Joseph Drouhin:
DEDICATION TO THE DIVERSITY OF BURGUNDY With close to 90 different appellations, Joseph Drouhin offers a fascinating array of Burgundy terroirs in all their authenticity and subtle variations. A FAMILY HERITAGE For the last 130 years, Maison Joseph Drouhin has been in the hands of the Drouhin family. Today, the fourth generation is at the helm, animated by the same passion that inspired the founder of the company.
