The 2017 Volnay Santenots 1er Cru comes from the younger vines, around 22-years old from the Clos des Santenots. This is completely de-stemmed. It has an attractive bouquet with violet and iris scents infusing the black cherry and cassis fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, gentle in terms of grip, not enormously complex but it has a lilting quality that will make it attractive in its youth. 87-89 points. Neal Martin, Vinous Media January 2019 A more obviously floral-infused nose displays cool nuances of tangerine peel, pear and a hint of matchstick. There is both better volume and richness to the generously proportioned flavors that possess good underlying tension if only average depth on the refreshing finish. 89-91 points. Allen Meadows, Burghound June 2019
