DOMAINE THIERRY ET PASCALE MATROT 2012 VOLNAY SANTENOTS

This enchanting Burgundy comes from the Premier Cru vineyard of Santenots, which lies in the commune of Mersault (mainly known for producing white wines). Yet their reds are a force to be reckoned with. With an average vine age of 32 years, this beautiful Volnay is delicate while still maintaining firm fruit and structure… the iron fist in the velvet glove, if you will. The wine is light ruby with a pronounced nose of strawberry, rose petals, violets, and a hint of vanilla. This is light and silky on the palate with more strawberry coming through, combined with cranberry and forest floor. This is an elegant, feminine wine with medium to high acidity, and will drink well now with time in the decanter, but can also age to reveal more characteristics for another 5-10 years. A solid buy for Premier Cru Burgundy.

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "A distinctive red, with a sweet aroma of burning vine cuttings leading to flavors of wild strawberry and cherry. A mineral note emerges as this lingers on the languid, chalk-tinged finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. 50 cases imported." –BS
