Why you shd be v v circumspect when buying Volnay 2013 http://t.co/PhnXMyu19R

One of the best articles I’ve read in a while, on Jancis’s site, written by Mark Haisma. I really should try to visit Mark!
As you will note from the tweet of Jancis above, she’s worried about 2013 Volnays and urging caution. This is only a small part of the article, but to my mind, this article is the perfect example of why you won’t have a problem with 2013 Volnay if you buy from respected names. My reasoning?
- Triage should have been relatively easy because there was less to triage – though there was rot to remove too!
- The best domaines are very serious about their triage.
- And like Mark, above, if it’s not right, they won’t put their label on it!
Now if you buy from a négoce that you don’t know, then of-course, caveat emptor…
