Jane Eyre Volnay

The weight of this bottle suggests this is a serious Burgundy. The Australian outpost in Burgundy, Jane Eyre, has managed access to good fruit. It shows in this bottle.

This 2015 Jane Eyre Volnay is a medium-bodied wine. It is red fruited, with some black cherry notes as well. This wine, from a warm vintage, is well balanced and not overdone. The tannins are finely grained, and the wine goes on for a while on the finish. 

So what is the difference between this wine and a grand cru? Fruit intensity, tannins and acidity are in synch, and reach a 6 or 7 out of 10. They are not dialled up as high as a grand cru at 9 or 10. Having said this, this profile works well in this warm vintage: recommended.

Score: 92/++
