Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Volnay 1er Cru Clos du Château des Ducs has a very pure bouquet that needs time to awaken in the glass: red cherries, touches of bergamot and pressed flowers. Perhaps I am just looking for a little more complexity here. The palate is very well balanced with quite thickset tannins that lend this palpable weight and an almost Pommard-like structure. It feels broad-shouldered on the finish and perhaps needs a little more flesh to come through.
