  • v91-93

The 2019 Volnay Les Aussy 1er Cru comes from vines planted in 1997 and 1956. It has a punchy, quite energetic bouquet with vivacious red berry fruit laced with wilted iris petals and a touch of oyster shell. The aromatics are determined to grab your attention. The palate is medium- bodied with sappy red fruit and a fine bead of acidity. Without being banal, there is just a lot of Pinoté in this Volnay and that is something I appreciate. Open and generous on the finish, this does one of the appellation's lesser-known vineyards proud.
