Decanter, 94 Points 

"Explosive cherry and blackberry fruit, with a supple, silky and round texture balanced by a lively freshness. This Volnay is a wine of tremendous energy and vigour, produced exclusively from the young vines of Santenots-du-Milieu, farmed organically. The exuberant fruit is destemmed and given a traditional fermentation with both punching down and pumping over before ageing in cask (one-third new)." 

John Gilman, 90 Points 

"Happily, despite the very short red grape yields in 2020, the Volnay villages bottling was produced in this vintage. This is made up entirely from younger vine parcels in the Santenots du Milieu premier cru vineyard, which were replanted in 2002 and 2005, so these vines are now starting to reach a good age. The wine is quite lovely, offering up fine purity on the nose in its mix of dark berries, cassis, bitter chocolate, a fine base of dark soil tones, woodsmoke and a lovely touch of currant leaf in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and nicely soil-driven, with a good core of black fruit, ripe, suave tannins and a long, tangy and complex finish. This is a lovely villages bottling. (Drink between 2030-2065.)"
