Wine AdvocateDestemmed entirely by hand this year, the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets opens with an exquisite bouquet of plums, wild berries, dark chocolate and peonies that displays striking purity of fruit. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, velvety and elegantly enveloping, with succulent acids, superb depth at the core and a long, mineral finish.
VinousThe 2018 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru is slightly darker in color than the Les Mitans. The nose needs a few moments to cohere but develops entrancing rose petal and oyster shells aromas that infuse the vivid red berry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with filigreed tannins. Quite saline and spicy in the mouth, leading into a persistent, slightly peppery finish. You can really feel the mineral soils here. This will age for decades. Drinking Window: 2023-2050.
