Other Reviews....
Spicier aromas include those of red cherry coulis, plum, more discreet earth and pretty floral nuances. There is fine density to the medium-bodied flavors that are blessed with an abundance of dry extract that imparts a sappy texture to the firm, serious and built-to-age finale. This will need to add depth to achieve the upper end of my projected range, but the potential appears to be present. Worth checking out. Drink through 2030+.

Allen Meadows - Burghound

The 2020 Volnay Santenots 1er Cru was the first vineyard harvested and even so, I feel this is the one cuvée with suggestions of slight sur-maturité. The palate is medium-bodied pliant tannins, quite sweet and candied, fleshy with wild strawberry, raspberry and white pepper towards the finish. Fine, but I think Matrot’s Maranges La Fussière is better. Drink 2025-2045.

Neal Martin - Vinous

One plot in Santenots Blancs, otherwise ‘sous le camping’ which is Les Plures. Not as dense in purple as the village Meursault. Not quite the density, softer at the finish, lower acidity, attractive but not quite convincing.
