Vinous – 93
The 2017 Volnay Les Chevrets 1er Cru has an open-knit, well-defined bouquet of brambly red berry fruit and discreet wilted rose petal aromas. The palate is medium-bodied, quite grippy and a little drier than its peers, with a slightly bitter, granular finish. It meliorates in the glass and leaves a pleasant spicy aftertaste. Excellent. Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2017 tasting.
Anticipated maturity: 2023-2037
Robert Parker – 91
Wafting from the glass with aromas of small red berries, raw cocoa and rose petal, the 2017 Volnay 1er Cru Les Chevrets is medium to full-bodied, melting and satiny, with a gourmand core of fleshy and succulent tannins that largely conceals its structuring tannins, balanced by an animating line of acidity.
