Lot #15. Robert Ampeau Volnay Santenots 1976

Description: Consists of 12 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 90 JG.
"The 1976 Santenots from Domaine Robert Ampeau is a very good example of the vintage that has resolved its tannins quite well and now shows no rough edges on the backend. The deep, complex and slightly roasted nose offers up scents of baked black cherries, dark berries, bonfires, damp earth, coffee bean, game and forest floor. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and very nicely balanced for a ’76, with tertiary flavors, melted tannins and good length and grip on the complex finish. Good juice in the Ampeau house style." View From The Cellar, Jul/Aug 2012, Issue #40
