2017 Volnay “Santenots du Milieu”: (from 40+ year old vines planted in shallow, high clay content soil sitting on a bed of solid rock). A very pungent nose speaks only of reduction and wood. Otherwise the succulent but more voluminous middle weight plus flavors exude a subtle minerality before concluding in solidly powerful, strikingly complex and impressively persistent finish. At the risk of repeating myself, this is not going to wow you with its concentration but it will with its depth and overall sense of harmony and balance. (92-94)/2032+
