The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Verseuil wafts from the glass with lavish aromas of blackberries, cherries, dark chocolate and toasty new oak. Medium to full-bodied, velvety and layered, it's rich and fleshy, with chalky structuring tannins that assert themselves on the back end and lively balancing acids. This is certainly marked by its ?levage, but it should develop well with some bottle age.
