While the nose isn't quite as fresh as the best in the range, there is a lovely spiciness to the various dark berry fruit scents. The wonderfully refined, intense, stony and beautifully delineated middle weight flavors possess a lilting mouth feel while the balanced finish tightens up noticeably on the focused and relatively powerful finish. While this could be enjoyed after only 5 years or so, this will likely require 10 to 12 years to be at its best. Note: a .68 ha monopole
Aromas of cassis, cherries, sweet red berries, dark chocolate and spices introduce the 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Verseuil, a medium to full-bodied wine that's supple, charming and elegant, with a pure core of juicy fruit and a fragrant finish.
I very much enjoyed Thibaud Clerget’s 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Verseuil. It’s a lighter vintage for Clerget, so I was not surprised to see the wine showing so well. I especially admired the wine’s focus and delineation. Classic Volnay.
