"Apparently Dominique Lafon regarded the 1978 Volnay Santenots as a benchmark wine until the 1985 came along. I can see why. Lighter in color than the 1976 and commensurate with a 35-year-old wine, it has a charming animally, feral bouquet with a cheeky dab of menthol that emerges from the wings with aeration. The palate is well-balanced with dry and firm tannins, but unlike the 1976, here it is counterbalanced with decayed red berry fruit infused with ferrous notes and Cepes. It swaggers in its dotage lovely. Drink now-2020. Tasted September 2013." - Neal Martin, robertparker.com (Dec 29, 2013)
