About the wine

Tasting notes

Superb energy and tension running the length of the palate impression with the intensely mineral-driven and beautifully well-delineated flavors culminating in an explosive yet Zen-like finish of impeccable balance and stunning length. This is one stylish and very classy effort.

Expert review

The 2010 Volnay Les Caillerets is utterly impeccable. Red fruit, crushed rocks and flowers are woven together beautifully in an elegant, refined fabric of notable pedigree and class. The aromas and flavors build effortlessly to the huge, intense finish. This is all finesse. I loved it. Anticipated maturity: 2017-2027.
