- Tasting Notes
A more deeply pitched nose features aromas of dark currant, spiced plum, earth and wet stone. There is a beautifully refined, even silky mouth feel to the attractively energetic middle weight flavors that culminate in a delicious if again ever-so-mildly dry finish that clips the length just slightly.

The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des 60 Ouvrees has a very harmonious bouquet with blackberry, cassis and hints of sandalwood: very well defined at with great intensity. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp, tensile tannins. There is great energy here, very detailed with a pointed, citric finish that has more freshness than you need. Just as thrilling as it tasted in barrel.

Good deep red. Distinctly wilder on the nose than the Clos de la Bousse d’Or, offering scents of darker berries, licorice, violet, mocha and wild herbs. Dense, sappy and rich, with a classic dryness and noteworthy power to the lightly saline flavors of black cherry and spices. Finishes firmly tannic, energetic and quite long.
