Wine Type: Red
Grape Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol: 12.5%

Appellation: Volnay 1er Cru Controlee
Expect to Pay: ~ EUR90
Chubby Appreciation: 93/100
Critics' Opinion: ST - 91/100, BH - 92/100

Appearance: Light ruby.
Aroma: Perfume of flower field enhanced with red fruits. Minerality.
Palate: Medium touch on the palate. Silkily smooth. Strawberry stands out. Complex with persistent finish.

Looking for masculine new world, you might just forget this one. This is pure and cool in style. Classic and elegant. Personally, love this style. Structure wise, it should live its age well in my humble opinion. Enjoyable now but cannot imagine how it would develop during the next decade.
