The 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots-du-Milieu confirms its strong showing from barrel, soaring from the glass with scents of ripe cherries, red berries, rose petals, orange rind and a deft touch of toasty new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, with melting tannins, succulent acids and a charming, supple profile that makes it hard to resist.

The 2017 Volnay Les Santenots-du-Milieu 1er Cru has a complex bouquet with a mixture of red and black fruit, a touch of whole cluster from an additional vat lending a little pepperiness. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins on the entry and a little compact at the moment. The elegant, transparent finish has a skip in its step. Divine.
