Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" 2007, Domaine Matrot
Many of the top Meursault domaines produce red wines in the neighbouring village of Volnay. One can hardly imagine that they would go so far away as the Côte de Nuits! It just wouldn't be medieval. What would Charlemagne have said? Likewise, top Volnay producers like Bitouzet-Prieur also own vines in Meursault. This 2007 Volnay-Santenots has a medium-ruby colour. Open, floral notes, with a curlicue of orange-sanguine. Flavours of raspberry, ripe red currant, violets. Great purity and a linear structure. Further confirmation of the characteristic of 2007: fascinating, elegant nose with a fresh structure.
