"This has turned out somewhat better than I originally foresaw with a beautifully complex nose that is clearly showing plenty of secondary development (though no tertiary influence). The mature, rich and satisfying middle weight flavors offer good size and weight with an abundance of minerality before transitioning into the sappy finish that delivers excellent length with none of the dilution that one sees in some 2000s. Like the 2001, this delivers exceptionally good quality for what was quite a challenging vintage in Volnay due to the late season rains. This is drinking well now." (Apr 2012)
