Domaine Henri Boillot : Volnay 1er cru "Les Santenots" 2014
Wine Advocate-Parker :
Tasted blind at the Burgfest 2014 tasting, the 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots from Henri Boillot has a surprisingly simple bouquet that does not really get both hands on the terroir. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly bitter entry, structured, stern and missing some flow on the last third of the wine. However, it seems to improve and gain some manners with aeration, and though there clearly remains new oak to be subsumed, it has the substance to repay those who cellar it for 4-5 years. Tasted September 2017.
