2008 Louis Latour Volnay Premier Cru 'En Chevret'



Jim's Whims:

This Premier Cru is in a wonderful 'Phase II' place of expression.  It's ample in body and after a little airing demonstrates the compelling truffle / forest floor addition to fruit that only time can provide.  There's something irresistibly sexy about Volnay, and this is a rare chance to access a beautifully-aged one.  

Accolades:  90 Points Wine Spectator: "This is supple, but with grip too, giving the cherry, raspberry and spice flavors form and definition. Finishes with a touch of oak spice along with a mineral component. Best from 2013 through 2024." (reviewed in 2011)
