2010 Volnay "Carelle Sous la Chapelle"

A discreet application of wood sets off earthy dark berry fruit aromas that are well nuanced and clearly ripe. There is good richness and reasonably good maturity of the structural elements that support and shape the moderately intense and lightly mineral-inflected flavors that possess a dusty, notably firm and lingering finish of moderate complexity. In sum, this is indisputably attractive without being especially deep, at least not yet. 90 points

 

2010 Volnay "Clos de la Chapelle"

This is also notably earthy but a bit more elegant and with less if not invisible wood treatment to the perfumed and cool red berry fruit nose. There is a lovely refinement to the vibrant, intense and mineral infused flavors that possess fine detail and plenty of punch on the lingering finish. This is sophisticated but not delicate and very Volnay in essential character. 91 points


2010 Pommard "Les Chanlins"

Soft wood is also present here though it's sufficiently in the background to avoid impairing the transparency of the relatively high-toned red pinot fruit, stone and earth suffused nose. There is fine detail to the rich, powerful and solidly well-concentrated flavors that possess excellent verve and depth on the linear, balanced and impressively persistent finish. A classic Pommard that is worth considering. 92
