2019 Henri Boillot Volnay Les Caillerets Premier Cru
Here the pure and ripe nose offers yet another level of spiciness that includes clove, anise and sandalwood that adds breadth of the aromas of black raspberry, violet, rose petal and tea. The super-sleek, intense and mineral-driven flavors possess excellent delineation while delivering outstanding length on the classy, focused and balanced finale. At least 6 to 8 years of cellaring is recommended. Drink 2031+.
Allen Meadows - Burghound
One of my favorite wines in the cellar is the 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets, a lovely cuvée that wafts from the glass with notes of plums, rose petals, sweet berry fruit, raw cocoa and loamy soil. Medium to full-bodied, bright and lively, it's sapid and concentrated, with refined tannins and a long, saline finish. Drink 2025 - 2050.
William Kelley - Wine Advocate (Jan 2021)
Another very dark purple and a little bit of heat on the nose, but this is more restrained and less voluptuous than the Volnay Fremiets. Gorgeous energy here, with aromatics of dried roses, Guillaume suggests, but more vibrant. Very intense at the back of the palate, now with raspberry and blackcurrant notes, very good structural tannins, and fine length.
