“Exhibiting notes of sweet berries, cherries, warm spices, orange rind and rose petals, the 2020 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes is medium to full-bodied, velvety and vibrant, with fine concentration and powdery tannins. It was in tank awaiting bottling when I tasted it.” 92-94 William Kelley FOR THE 2020, NOT THE 2021 OFFERED HERE

“From vines planted in 1937, Javillier’s 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chênes is superb, mingling notions of sweet red berries and plums with hints of orange rind, petals and spices. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, it’s supple and concentrated, with melting tannins and a long, resonant finish. Readers interested in history will be intrigued to learn that, in 1945, a few rows of this parcel were damaged when a Sherman tank positioned itself here to fire on Wehrmacht forces near Beaune.” 93+ William Kelley for the 2019, NOT THE 2021 OFFERED HERE
