This vineyard bordering Pommard did once produce wines with some robust, muscular tannins. But now that they have reached 70 years old, the father and son team note how much the tannins have begun to soften, and become distinctly finer in recent years. It still has a vibrant grippiness in 2020, but the floral aromatics, and the fine-grained nature of the tannins give it elegance.
The 2020 Volnay Les Brouillards 1er Cru has a very perfumed bouquet with violet-tinged dark cherry and boysenberry fruit, expanding nicely in the glass with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins, quite lithe and smooth in the mouth with a touch of white pepper on the finish. Give this three or four years in bottle just to coalesce.
