Tasted On 12/28/2010

A mere 1,000 bottles worth of 2006 Volnay Clos des Santenots (from the old vines in this monopole) made it through the gauntlet of Prieur's sorting tables, and the results were treated to the same 100% new wood as the estate's grand crus. This exhibits an almost severe degree of concentration, with tart but ripe cherry, rhubarb, pungent brown spices, and smoky, peat like notes combining on a viscous yet firmly-textured palate. It finishes emphatically, but without much charm or nuance, and with the effect of the extra measure of wood seemingly tipping the scales away from juicy primary fruit satisfaction. That said, here is a formidable Pinot that will be well worth revisiting in 2010 or 2011 and should not succumb to old age for at least a decade. What's more, it's certainly possible that the wine would have appeared to me more expressive if given another several weeks post-bottling

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
