The ripest nose to this point exhibits liqueur-like notes of plum, blue berry and violets that complement well the equally ripe, opulent and mineral-inflected flavors that are also quite fullbodied, all wrapped in a detailed, vibrant and hugely long finish. The underlying material here is superb and this should easily improve for the next 12 to 15 years and last for an equivalent period thereafter. 94/2021+

(80-year-old vines) Bright full ruby-red. Wild, nuanced nose combines black fruits, licorice, smoke and flowers, perked up by lift from calcaire and flinty silex Then fat, lush, full and sweet, with the black cherry and game flavors given shape by harmonious acidity. This very rich Volnay saturates the palate with flavor and lingers impressively on the broadly tannic aftertaste. Lush and impressive. Just 30% new oak for this premier cru: Landanger noted that he has cut the percentage of new oak in recent years to privilege fruit and terroir.
