Bingo! Full House! Snap! Checkmate! This is an absolute winner. The aromas are beautiful and had us making great big ticks across the page of our tasting booklet before we'd even taken a sip. Intensely fragrant and subtly toasty and rich, as you might find in a top notch Meursault, but we're in an altogether less exalted appellation here, which is greatly to the credit of winemaker, Pascal Roblet, a Volnay resident, who can trace his ancestry in that village back to 1600. That's a lot of local knowledge handed down the generations.

On the nose it feels like a marriage between the Cote d'Or and the Jura with the tangy, flinty, stone-fruit stamp of fine white Burgundy combined with the nutty, almond oil richness of a Jura Chardonnay. Nothing overdone, everything in the best of order. The palate has an understated opulence, with rich, ripe, tangy fruit given a golden toastiness by the barrel-ageing and the silky texture carries the flavours softly towards their final, joyful cascade. We think it's a lot better than its price tag, so we bought as much as we could, which, sadly, was only 60 bottles. 12.5% alc. Biodynamic viticulture. Drink now-2022.
