From Australian winemaker Jane Eyre, this Hospices de Beaune Volnay premier cru “Cuvée Blondeau” has proven a very good, consistent wine that expresses correctly its origin. The reason for its affordable (for Burgundy) price is not obvious, but it is not a pity for the wine lover. I have tasted a number of bottles of this wine and it consistently expresses aromatic red fruits, a medium to full body and fresh acidity. The sterner 2013 Burgundy vintage finds a good counterweight in the more aromatic and forward style of this Volnay premier cru. This is a well crafted wine that is ready to drink now. Rating: Good to Very Good (★★★☆). Reviewed: May 2022.
