Volnay Premier Cru les Chevrets 2001, Jean Boillot et Fils

A beautiful nose of ripe red fruit, it has a degree of rhubarb character to it. I quite like the minerality on the finish. The nose is that of a light-bodied, hopefully lovely wine. The palate is light, with plenty of bright, fresh fruit, but sadly the acidity is a bit high; quite rhubraby, in fact. It seems a bit spiky. A refreshing glass of red Burgundy, but ultimately lacking loveliness.
