The 2016 Volnay Clos des Chenes 1er Cru offers plenty of pastille-like red fruit on the nose, not quite as defined as some and evolving a meatiness/bloody character with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well-judged acidity, caressing in the mouth with a harmonious and persistent finish that shows some dryness with aeration. This is initially very attractive and though it just loses some clarity with aeration, it remains a promising Clos des Chenes. Tasted blind at the 2016 Burgfest tasting in Burgundy.
