Peter Maude Fine Wines

2017, Domaine Blain-Gagnard, VOLNAY, 1er Cru, 'Champans'

Bold purple, offering significant weight of dark fruit on the nose, with plenty of substance on the paalte. Whilst this has taken up the oak a bit, there is good acid balance, and agreeable persistence. *** 90/100 Jasper Morris.

The vibrant, well-detailed and tautly muscular flavours display a refreshing salinity on the equally youthfully austere and moderately firm finale. I very much like the sense of inner mouth perfume that adds to the overall appeal. Note that at least some patience will be necessary. 90-93/100 Burghound.
