2010 Domaine Faiveley Volnay 1er Cru "Santenots"

SKU #1115576 92-94 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright, full, deep red. Crushed cherry, raspberry, minerals, cocoa powder and coriander on the vibrant nose. Sweet, fine-grained and subtly powerful, with terrific inner-mouth perfume and lift. Wonderfully classy Volnay, finishing bright, suavely tannic and very long. Consultant Bernard Hervet did a light extraction here, and believes that this cuvee got a bit too much pigeage in 2008. Inner quote mark (2/2012)

90-93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark Very deep ruby. An explosive and highly complex nose offers up aromas of raspberry and cherry liqueur along with hints of lavender and violets. The medium-bodied flavors possess outstanding richness and volume with excellent levels of dry extract that render the tannins almost invisible at present though the finish is sufficiently firm to suggest that they will require 12 to 15 years to fully resolve. I very much like the balance and sense of harmony here. Drink 2022+. Inner quote mark (1/2102)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A beautifully perfumed wine from one of Volnay's top vineyards, this delights with its aromatic red fruits, ripe tannins and balancing acids. It is still settling down and will certainly round out over the next years when its more sumptuous side will come forward. Inner quote mark (11/2102)

K&L Notes

Additional notes from Burghound: "Bernard Hervet describes 2010 as a "cool vintage that produced ultra-classic wines with extremely fine tannins...we were blessed with some really special wines in 2010. They offer the same style as the 2008s but I would say that the quality is twice as good and with notably finer tannins. The wines have gorgeous freshness and plenty of that underlying tension that confers a sense of vibrancy on them without being unduly acidic to accomplish it. You really feel like drinking the 2010s because they are not only profound but superbly refreshing. Even more encouraging is the fact that the 2010s seem to get better every month and we will probably bottle the average wine in the range some 2 months later than usual to allow for their continued development."
