Vinous – 92
The 2015 Volnay Chevrets 1er Cru has a lovely brambly red fruit, wild hedgerow and rose petal bouquet that blossoms with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, gentle grip in the mouth, hints of brown spice and even a subtle nori-like vein toward a nicely proportioned, focused finish that lingers in the mouth. Excellent. Tasted blind at the annual Burgfest tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035
Robert Parker – 89
“Boillot’s 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Les Chevrets offers up an attractive nose of creamy red cherry, spice and asphalt, followed by a medium to full-bodied, firm but elegant palate with a core of attractively juicy, crunchy fruit. A very nice Volnay 1er Cru.”
Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030
