Fullish ruby and the deepest colored in this group of ’01 Volnays. Dense and rich without a trace of undue weight or opacity. Incisive and fragrant: raw meat and hibiscus. Tastes like morello cherries – quite an accomplishment for ’01 Volnay! Still some tannin, ripe and fine-grained. Almost Syrah-like. Fine grip and nuanced detail at the end; just not as mineralic at her Santenots. You can still keep this. Now – 2018+.
