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
