"The 2010 Volnay Mitans was made with 100% whole clusters and that comes through loud and clear in the wine’s expressive aromatics. Layers of silky red berries follow as the aromas and flavors take shape. Rose petals, spices and licorice are layered into the sensual, totally beguiling finish. The Mitans needs time for the stems to fully harmonize with the rest of the elements, but there is no denying it is flat-out delicious. This is a great effort from Etienne de Montille. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2035."
Allen Meadows - Burghound:
"A positively gorgeous and airy nose offers outstanding complexity and breadth with a dazzling combination of rose petal, spice, stone and extract of red pinot fruit. The refined and impressively precise medium-bodied flavors possess striking punch and authority before culminating in a long and impeccably well-balanced finish. This understated effort makes quite a statement yet it is a wine of gossamer fineness."
