2019 Henri Boillot Volnay Les Chevrets Premier Cru
A markedly more floral nose slowly reveals its aromas of cool and very pure red currant and spiced plum scents. The medium-bodied flavors possess a simply gorgeous mouthfeel along with fine detail before concluding in a mineral-driven and youthfully austere finale. This is firm enough to reward up to a decade of cellaring yet not so firm as to be unapproachable young if desired. Drink 2027+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Chevrets offers up aromas of plums, cassis, orange rind, petals and raw cocoa. Medium to full-bodied, lively and nicely concentrated, it's bright and fine-boned, concluding with a long finish. Produced from almost 60-year-old vines, this is a long-time fixture of the range. Drink 2022 - 2045.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Volnay Chevrets 1er Cru has a more backward nose compared to the Fremiets, darker fruit with a pastille-like quality. The palate is well balanced with sappy red berry fruit, fine acidity with that pastille leitmotif returning on the elegant and pure finish. This Volnay is refined and approachable, but I suspect it has the legs to give 15-20 years of drinking pleasure. Drink 2023 - 2040.
Neal Martin - Vinous
Deepish purple, quite floral nose with a fine light touch, massive sucrosity in the middle, good wood tannins behind, a super succulent Volnay. Huge energy through to the finish and then just enough acidity. This will make an outstanding bottle for some, just a bit too rich for others.
