A well-defined and quite precise bouquet, perhaps more so compared to the Mitans and the Santenots. The palate is medium-bodied with silky tannins, a fine bead of acidity, vibrant and fresh with a slightly candied finish. There is something very seductive and more-ish about this Volnay - excellent.

Neil Martin, Vinous. 

There is slightly less concentration to the still notably powerful medium-bodied flavors, there is also a bit more refinement than usual, all wrapped in a youthfully austere and saline-inflected finale. 

Allen Meadowns, Burghound.

Opens in the glass with notes of sweet red berries, orange rind, peonies, cinnamon and cloves. Medium to full-bodied, it's more introverted and tightly wound than the seductive Les Mitans. In 2021, Jadot entered into organic conversion for their domaine vineyards. 

William Kelley, Wine Advocate.

Medium to deep purple, beautifully ripe, so much going on, plump lush raspberry but never losing its thread, more character in this warmer vintage rather than drying it. This is a very good Clos de la Barre, as good as I can remember. 

Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy.
