The 2008 Volnay Mitans opens with an explosive, captivating bouquet. It bursts from the glass with marvelous vitality and energy in its fruit, showing tons of clarity and terrific overall balance. The Mitans was made with 100% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.
Good medium red. Captivating aromas of musky cherry, Oriental spices, incense and sexy oak nuances, plus a whiff of soft citrus fruits. Broad, rich and sweet, with good flesh for the vintage leavened by an edge of acidity that will require a year or two to harmonize with the wine. Finishes with building but integrated tannins and a slight youthful toughness.
A spicy, pure elegant and restrained nose of red berry fruit, dried rose petal and discreet spice hints precedes very supple and refined flavors that possess exquisite detail on the moderately austere, focused and energetic finish. A lovely and understated effort that is very Mitans. Tasted: Apr 18, 2010 Score: 91 Drink: 2018+ Comments: Sweet spot Outstanding
