Burghound Issue: Issue 18

The nose positively explodes from the glass, revealing very ripe, intense, elegant, complex black fruit aromas that complement ultra refined, precise, textured and pure middle weight, concentrated and deep flavors of breathtaking purity. This is very pinot in style and while the flavors appear supple, there is ample buried structure that arrives with a rush on the finish, as though it were late for something. This will require a few years to completely harmonize but it should be well worth the wait and for the truly patient, the balance is so exceptional here that it should be capable of at least 15 years of improvement, perhaps more.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 119

($103; bottled in July of 2004) Medium red. Superripe aromas of red cherry, redcurrant, licorice, menthol and earth. Fat, rich and full in the mouth, with the most obvious sweetness of these 2002s. This really coats the palate with flavor. The wine's acids and tannins are deceptively gentle at first, and the wine is surprisingly accessible, but there's plenty of structure here for aging.

Wine Advocate Author: Neal Martin Issue: 210

The 2002 Volnay Santenot has a lovely open, generous bouquet with vibrant red fruit: redcurrant, freshly picked raspberry and wild hedgerow ' perhaps just a touch of pine cone in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with a rounded, succulent entry. It feels harmonious and luscious in the mouth, the tannins just beginning to soften after a decade in bottle. There is something quite feminine about the 2002 although it does not quite possess the complexity or nuance of the 2005. Drink 2015-2030. Tasted September 2013.
