Volnay 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" 2007, Jean-Marc Bouley

Tasted at the domaine in late October, Les Caillerets is considered one of the top Volnay premiers crus. This wine is produced from vines with an average age of just 5 years but you wouldn't know it in a blind tasting. The vineyard has a sunny exposition and ripens early. Still closed on the nose but the palate is all finesse, minerality, class and restraint. Needs another 3 years in bottle to gain fruit fat and release pent up aromas. We preferred the Clos de la Cave but bought both.
