"A round profile embraces rose, cherry, raspberry and kirsch flavors. Complex and silky, giving way to firm tannins on the finish, leaving a lightly astringent feel. Best from 2020 through 2033. -B.S." (WS)

"Moderate reduction renders the nose difficult to read at present. Otherwise there is fine richness to the rounded, suave and generously proportioned flavors where the seductive mid-palate contrasts considerably with the firm, moderately rustic and mildly austere finale. This isn't particularly complex just yet, though the underlying material appears to be of sufficient quality that more depth may very well develop." (BH)

"This wine is firm yet ripe, with a bold yet tight character that foreshadows a rich wine in the future. The cherry and red plum flavors are lush and generous. It is going to be a delicious wine, full of concentration. Drink from 2023." (WE)

Winery Notes:
Of a ruby colour, the Volnay 1er Cru "En Chevret" 2015 reveals an intense nose of red fruits, undergrowth and liquorice aromas. In the mouth it is round and elegant with mellow tannins.
