2019 Thierry Glantenay Volnay Clos des Chenes Premier Cru
The most powerful wine in the cellar is the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes, a rich, muscular cuvée that offers up notes of plums, cherries, orange rind, spices and burning embers. Full-bodied, ample and muscular, it's deep and layered, with plenty of ripe, fleshy fruit cloaking its broad chassis of tannin.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Volnay Clos des Chênes 1er Cru has a fruit-driven bouquet with ample redcurrant and raspberry aromas, touches of limestone and flint percolating through with time. Very classy aromatics. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite lithe and sensual, just a hint of bitter cherry towards the finish. Very elegant, perhaps the most elegant of Glantenay’s crus this vintage, it may also be more approachable than the Les Rugiens or Caillerets. Drink 2022 - 2042.
