Volnay 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur
Tasted at the domaine, the Volnay from Bitouzet-Prieur can be regarded as a benchmark for the village. This 2009 Volnay has wonderful berry fruit aromas; raspberry, cherry, cassis with some chalk and walnut. Its a fairly rich wine with good matière and a strong finish with ripe tannins. Not yet showing the smoothness of a Volnay but this will come given the ripe red and black fruits. Enjoyable now.
