DOMAINES MATROT 2010 VOLNAY SANTENOTS 1ER CRU

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.

BURGHOUND 89 POINTS - "This is both riper and more elegant with a lovely and beautifully layered blend of red currant, plum, spice and earth. There is good mid-palate density to the suave, even opulent flavors that exude a fine minerality on the equally spicy and persistent finish. While the Matrot style is for reds that will be agreeable when they're young, this will also be capable of rewarding 3 to 5 years of cellar time."
