2021 Georges Glantenay Volnay 1er Ronceret

2021 Georges Glantenay Volnay 1er Ronceret



This is annually one of the first sites to be picked, as it is a precocious ripener. For Sarah, she regularly finds this to be the most delicate and floral wine in their range of 1ers. The 2021 suits that description to a T, with striking aromatic prettiness and is gorgeously flattering. Charm and delicacy….! Beautiful. A little * awarded here.

“(from a .40 ha holding). One of the hallmark elements of a classic Ronceret is its tendency to have plenty of floral elements on the nose and that is exactly what you will find on the very fresh aromas of plum and red and dark currant scents. The tension-filled and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors conclude in a chiseled and slightly chalky finish that also displays a touch of bitter pit fruit character. At least some patience should be beneficial. (89-92)/2029+” Allen Meadows

“Always the first to pick (along with Santenots). More wine in 2021 than 2020 here! Mid purple, floral nose with slightly more pointed acidity. Pretty, pure, fresh, acidity more than tannins behind but enough fruit to cover. Has ripened well enough in this sunny site. Drink from 2026-2031. Tasted: October 2022.” 89-92 Jasper Morris
