There is just enough wood present to merit pointing out on the distinctly earthy black cherry liqueur-like nose where a hint of kirsch lurks in the background. The super-sleek and appealingly vibrant medium weight flavors are not especially dense yet there is good power as well as fine depth and outstanding persistence on the compact, serious, youthfully austere and impeccably well-balanced finale. This is a first-rate Clos des Chênes.  Burghound 94 Don't Miss Outstanding!

One third comes from lower down, then the rest higher up on white soil which brings the structure. A much denser colour, enormously more powerful, hence coming later in the line-up. A muscular style to the fruit, and many more tannins, this will need a great deal longer to come round. Good wine with potential, if slightly surprising to find this structure in Clos des Chênes. Drink from 2032-2038. Tasted: October 2023. Jasper Morris 91-94

The 2022 Volnay Clos des Chênes ler Cru is very expressive on the nose. Redcurrant, wild strawberry and light rose petal scents unfold in the glass, less immediate than the Caillerets but ultimately offering more complexity. The palate is medium-bodied with pliant tannins. This is harmonious, taut, fresh, and well-defined, with a composed but persistent finish. Excellent.  Neal Martin 92-94
