Estimated full landed price – $220.57

The 2022 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru contains more than two-thirds whole bunches, which is barely discernible on the pure nose graced with superb mineralité. The palate is medium-bodied with dark berry fruit. Here, one can tell the whole bunches contribution: a little stemmy, slightly Pommard-like style with a bell pepper-tinged finish. This will require time in bottle. 92-94 Neal Martin, Vinous (2023).

Two thirds whole bunch and just 12.5% here. A lovely vibrant purple, full of energy. There is a sublime elegance to this on the nose, then a rather earthier dark fruit and a few tannins behind. One can see the suggestion of grand cru in the terroir of Caillerets compared to most other Volnay 1ers Crus. **** 92-94 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (2023).
