The 2022 Volnay Clos de la Cave des Ducs 1er Cru has a more expressive bouquet than the Les Mitans: vivid red cherry and crushed strawberry aromas, lively and energetic. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly peppery entry, so you would assume there were more than 10-15% stems. Slightly vegetal and quite penetrating with a persistent finish, it's not a crowd-pleaser, but I find this cerebral. 91-93 Neal Martin, Vinous (2023).

A fine mid purple, this is beautifully floral, an ethereal Volnay without massive body. Gains more weight on the second half of the palate, finishes well in a more sensual style. 14% explains the floral and sensual notes. **** 90-93 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (2023).
