"The 2010 Volnay Les Fremiets is impressive for its sheer richness and concentration. Dark cherries, cola, mocha, licorice and tar literally explode from the glass in this full-bodied, opulent Burgundy. Even with its super-ripe, almost extreme expression of fruit, there is more than enough minerality to provide balance. The Fremiets is not for the faint of heart, but a beautiful wine in its own way."
Stephen Tanzer (ST): 92-94
"Wild black raspberry, mocha, earth, leather and menthol on the nose, with a note of minerality emerging with air... The vibrant back end features serious tannins that saturate the mouth and reach the front teeth."
