2019 Thierry Glantenay Volnay Santenots Premier Cru
The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots was the last wine in the cellar to finish its malolactic fermentation, and its bouquet of smoky blackberries and cherries was still comparatively unformed. Medium to full-bodied, layered and lively, its bright acids and powdery tannins mark it out as a particular success this year.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
The 2019 Volnay Les Santenots 1er Cru is the only cru completely de-seemed as Glantenay felt that it was already powerful. It has a clean and pure bouquet with red cherries and wild strawberry, undergrowth and light black pepper scents. The palate is well balanced, succulent and fleshy, a generous Santenots that benefits from Glantenay's decision to eschew stems. Quite saline on the finish, this is excellent. Drink 2024 - 2040.
