The 2021 Volnay Village comes from Es Echard and Les Aussy in equal amounts. It has a slightly lean nose, brambly red berry fruit and sous-bois, though it lacks a bit of fruite. The palate is sharp on the entry, almost Pommard-like, focused but it needs more flesh and depth on the finish.
Anticipated maturity: 2024-2030

The pretty ruby colour of the vintage. Less bouquet up front than the Bourgogne. More fruit concentration on the palate with a little crunch behind. Nice persistence.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2028
