The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots-du-Milieu, matured in around 40% new oak, offers detailed blackberry, raspberry and crushed strawberry scents on the nose; exhibiting impressive mineralité and an overall, a disarming sense of composure. The palate is medium-bodied with plenty of fleshy ripe strawberry and cranberry notes. It feels supple and lithe in the mouth with a judicious spiciness developing on the finish. This Volnay just feels very assured and should age with style.

Tasting note


The 2017 Domaine Francois Mikulski Santenots du Milieu is a testament to the finesse and elegance that Volnay Premier Cru can offer. With an organic approach, this wine exudes intense aromas of red fruits, particularly cherries, complemented by delicately smoked meats. On the palate, it reveals a fresh and vibrant profile, with layers of blackberry, pepper, liquorice, and a distinctive tobacco-chocolate finish. The wine has been carefully matured in oak barrels, with a minimum of 14 months aging, using approximately 35% new barrels to ensure a harmonious integration of flavors. From the vineyard, the two family-owned parcels, one planted in 1947 and the other in 1976, contribute to the complexity of this wine, with a subsoil of brown silt atop fractured rock. This Volnay is a perfect match for roasted duck, grilled lamb chops, or a hearty mushroom risotto, and will continue to age with grace and assurance.
