90 Points - David Schildknecht - The Wine Advocate - David Schildknecht Issue Date 21st Dec 2009 Source 186, The Wine Advocate A 2006 Volnay Santenots – incorporating fruit from the young vines of the monopole Clos de Santenots – represents another Prieur bottling based on pathetically low post-triage yields. Cinnamon-tinged ripe cherry in the nose are carried over to a palpably dense yet finely-grained palate with chalk dust, iodine, salt, black pepper and cherry pit notes persisting in an impressively palate-staining, savory, and invigorating finish. Enologist Nadine Gublin reports that the Prieur team performed a severe triage of 2006 Pinot – especially from the Cote de Beaune – both in the vineyards and on tables. The fine results speak for themselves, boasting (with one exception) purity of fruit and complexity, as well as a range of distinctively 2006 virtues. “
