Bitouzet-Prieur Volnay Clos des Chenes 2009


SKU nbbivc091


The "Clos des Chenes", again from one of the renowned 1er Cru sites in Volnay, is a touch fruitier and more subtle than the Taillepieds with slightly less stout tannins. It is a generous and quite exceptional wine that always reflects exceptional balance.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Volnay Clos des Chenes is a bit cooler and more inward than the Taillepieds despite boasting considerable volume itself. The fruit takes on considerable darkness and richness as the wine sits in the glass. Menthol, spices, intense minerals, licorice and freshly cut flowers wrap around the huge, implosive finish. The Clos des Chenes is a wine with a bright, bright future. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.
