Xavier Monnot Volnay Premier Cru Clos des Chenes 2018


In Stock

“The 2018 Volnay Clos des Chenes ler Cru offers a mixture of red and black fruit, veins of blue fruit and lovely floral notes coming through with aeration, and the oak is nicely integrated. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chalky tannins that frame the black currant and bilberry truit. A dense Volnay with an attractive sappy finish. Drinking window: 2022-2033. 89-91 points

Xavier Monnot began the harvest on 20 August and had fined the his wines the previous week of my visit. ” I did a bit more whole bunch in the reds: 20% in the bottom of the vat to add more freshness. I did the same for the 2019s,” he explained.”
