  • Goedhuis, December 2022

    Mitans derives from the old French word for middle or centre, aptly for this Cru which lies at the foot of the slope just beneath the village, directly in the heart of the appellation. The soil here is fine clay, creating a very composed wine. It totally jumps out of the glass, red cherry and sloe. Such a pretty wine, perfumed and aromatic. The tannins are gentle and carefully enveloped in the voluptuous texture. Quite delicious.

  • Jasper Morris MW, December 2022, Score: 89-91

    Half a crop, 6 barrels made. Once again this is paler in colour. A pretty elegant bouquet, à la Volnay. Not huge in volume, a bit of strawberry, just enough fruit to reach the back, but one of the more delicate wines of the vintage, albeit persistent. Drink from 2025-2031.

Region

Volnay

A red wine appellation only, wines from Volnay might be considered the most revered of southern Burgundy. They have been celebrated since the 18th century for their delicacy. But they are not fruit forward like those of Beaune or Chorey Lès Beaune nor have the brooding structure of Pommard.Instead, they have superb linearity, focus and poise while sheathed in velvety tannin. This slightly reticent personality comes out even more with a bit of age, though some can be approached very young. There are no grand cru vineyards in Volnay, but there are some excellent premier cru examples including Volnay Les Champans and Volnay Les Caillerets. Chardonnay grown in the shared Santenots vineyard must be labelled as Meursault.
