  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($48) Deep red. Less explosive but deep nose features cherry, redcurrant, tobacco, milk chocolate and a suggestion of earth. Very rich and firm but less expressive and sweet today than the Taillepieds, and not quite as pristine. But a full, serious, traditionally styled Volnay built for long life in bottle. Finishes with substantial but ripe tannins.

    Bright berry notes and a silky texture hold sway in this dense, elegant red. The stiff tannins need beef or duck to mellow them. Built to age. 300 cases made.

    Deep crimson. Very vigorous and bouncing and still quite chewy on the finish. A real baby but full of punch and vigour. Some autumnal burliness. Definitely not to be approached yet. Hint of citrus - orange? - on the finish. Masses of lively tannins.

    Quite ripe with more black fruit than usual as well as bigger and richer flavors than is typical. However the '99 manages to preserve the hallmark purity, detail and minerality plus it delivers the same superb length as the Taillepieds. Stunningly complex and impeccably balanced, this should age for a long time. A truly great Clos des Ducs.

    The 1999 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Ducs has always been an impressive wine, although here I did not think it quite achieved the level of the bottle poured at the vertical back in September 2010. Noticeably deep in colour, it maintains that sense of opulence on the nose with pastille-like purity: raspberry and wild strawberry, then blackcurrant following later. The palate has very good density and balance, more structure and more sinew than the 2002 Clos des Ducs but not quite the same degree of finesse. This is a little burlier (like many '99s at the moment.) You could approach this now, though I would prefer to leave it another two or three years.

    Beautiful, deep nose of sour cherry tobacco and earth. In the mouth very angular and mineral, partly due to the still fierce tannic structure. Even out of half bottle, this is nowhere near ready. A great wine in the making.

    Really coming around, the bracing acidity has softened letting the lovely fruit come to almost full expression.

Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
