    Rich and dense, wrapped in a layer of spicy new oak, this red offers black cherry and blackberry flavors. Dusty tannins quickly take over. The finish is vibrant and long. Best from 2020 through 2032.

    "There is just one barrel of the 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Champans because of the hail. There is a slight dustiness on the nose at first, although that seems to dissipate with time, even if it does remain rather broody and sultry. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip, supple tannin, good density here with very fine focus, just a little new oak to be subsumed on the finish, but otherwise this is a good proposition."
