Volnay 1er Cru "Les Caillerets" 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur

This Volnay Caillerets is a completely different style of wine from the Volnay Taillepieds which demonstrates the ability of the Bitouzet-Prieur team to harness terroir. Fairly closed on the nose with background plum, this Volnay 1er cru refused to open up at this youthful stage. Yet on the palate it is really full, delivering a concentrated cylinder of plum and cherry fruit which powers over the taste buds, tongue, gums and lips! This is a long wine with a big, structured, fin de bouche. The power and the glory of Volnay! Ça fait rêver.
