The 2010 Volnay Santenots is pure silk on the palate. It reveals striking suppleness and mid-palate pliancy in its expressive red berries, plums, flowers and licorice. This is an inviting, totally alluring wine graced with tons of sheer sexiness. A voluptuous, creamy finish takes things to their logical conclusion. There are no hard edges in this exceptionally elegant, polished Volnay. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2034. ~ (95) Antonio Galloni , Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 12-22-2011

Mid crimson. Smells like burgundy! (Not like most of the Pinot Noirs from all over the place that I have been tasting.) Intense, sweet nose. Lots of charm; hint of smoke. Very smooth and fresh. Utterly pure with quite a bit of tannin still there. Great purity. Jewel sweetness. Scrumptious. ~ (17.5) Jancis Robinson, JancisRobinson.com 8-4-2020

As was the case from cask, moderate reduction still renders the nose difficult to assess though it does not seem so severe as to suggest that it's permanent; in any event my score clearly offers the benefit of the doubt that it is not. There is plenty of energy and punch to the rich, concentrated and utterly delicious flavors that are at once generous but beautifully delineated before culminating in a balanced, explosive and gorgeously long finish. The amount of underlying material is truly impressive and the firm tannins are already well-integrated as the buffering sap almost makes them invisible. Again, assuming that the reduction isn't a longer-term issue, this should be one of the great vintages for this storied wine.
