Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots" 2010, Comtes Lafon
Tasted at the domaine in Meursault with Stéphane Thibodaux the Volnay-Santenots 2010 from Comtes Lafon proved to be an exceptionally tasty wine. Already open on the nose, as is the case with most fruit-driven 2010s, there are ripe dark red and black fruits, sweet herbs such as thyme and oregano. Thankfully the ripeness is combined with freshness yet this Volnay could initiate Provençal dreams. The low yields from 2010 have created a soft wine with gorgeous strawberry flavours supported by an excellent sapidité. A multi-dimensional wine which is already a pleasure to imbibe. Scores 26-28/30 for a Volnay 1er Cru.
