Quite riveting, this seductive, feminine Volnay Les Santenots shows characteristic elegance and refinement. Complex with a generous, spiced floral nose and delicate layering of fruit, floral and spice on the plate. Tannins are supple and well matched the delicacy of flavours. The wine is open and drinking very well now although would still benefit from another few years in bottle. Undeniably enjoyable. Score: 92 (Sara d'Amato, WineAlign.com, May 2013)
