"Santenots-du-Milieu" 1er Cru
The winery writes about Volnay Santenots: "Facing east, on shallow, red, heavy clay soil, above a subsoil of hard limestone, a very sunny spot and very early to ripen. The average age of the vines is over 30, the oldest are 60 and the youngest just 3. The wines are deep in color, rich, deep tannins are present ,but lovely and elegant on the end of the palate. Black fruit aromas dominate: blackberry, blackcurrant and cherry. More powerful than most of the Volnays, it is a wine to keep for a long time." For more Wine Country Classics click here.
Steve Tanzer, March 2014: "Good bright medium red. The most complex and complete of these 2011s on the nose, offering scents of black cherry, menthol, wild herbs and sexy underbrush; sappy and ripe but with noteworthy medicinal reserve. Silky on entry, then thick, bright and highly concentrated, with the violet and licorice lift and firm spine of acidity of a top Cote de Nuits wine. Lovely focus and dark fruit intensity here. Finishes bright and long, with serious but fine-grained tannins. This should age beautifully."
