Clos de la Chapelle, Volnay ''Clos de la Chapelle'' 1er Cru, 2016

“This is, to my palate, the single finest vintage of this monopole that the domaine has yet produced! The great nose soars from the glass in a sappy blend of cassis, sweet dark berries, pigeon, raw cocoa, a touch of currant leaf, a gorgeous base of soil tones and just a hint of new oak. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and shows superb mid-palate depth, with a very elegant and suave attack, lovely backend mineral drive, fine-grained tannins and a long, vibrant and very complex finish. This is a great young bottle of Volnay! 2026-2075.”
- John Gilman (94+ points)

“Ruby and garnet hues. An elegant bouquet, with aromas of very ripe berries and baking spices with a floral background. Lovely fullness on the palate, a supple and generous wine. Good tannic structure, with finesse and silkiness. A generous and long finish.”
