Clos-de-la-Chapelle-Volnay-En-Carelle-1er-Cru-2016

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

“The bouquet is deep, pure and nicely black fruity in personality, offering up a refined blend of cassis, black plum, bitter chocolate, dark soil tones, venison, a touch of cedar and a lovely topnote of currant leaf. On the palate the wine is transparent, focused, full- bodied and nicely sappy at the core, with suave tannins, excellent balance and a long, nascently complex and elegant finish. All this lovely bottle of Volnay will need is a bit of time in the cellar to blossom. 2026-2060.”
- John Gilman (91+ points)

“Here the reduction isn’t subtle and while it may well dissipate in time, if you’re going to crack a bottle soon it will help to give it a thorough aeration first. Otherwise there is a lacy, indeed almost delicate mouth feel to the energetic and stony flavors that deliver fine length on the balanced finish. Once again my rating implicitly assumes that the nose will recover with time in bottle.”
