Good deep red. Tight nose hints at black cherry and smoky, rocky, silex-like minerality. Very ripe, fat and sweet, with outstanding richness and depth to the black cherry, raspberry and minerals flavors. Wonderfully round, silky, full Volnay with noble tannins and perfectly integrated acidity. Builds slowly and steadily on the back, saturating the palate with subtle fruit, mineral and earth flavors. These vines were picked at the beginning of October. A great Volnay in the making.

The 2010 Volnay Les Caillerets impresses for its length and sheer persistence. All of the elements are beautifully woven together in this tightly grained, firm Volnay. Sweet flowers, mint and spices add complexity as the flavors build to the nuanced finish. This is a beautifully integrated wine with all of the elements in the right place.

A top producer for red and white alike. Henri and his son Guillaume have now moved all the vinification and élevage out of Volnay entirely in order to have all the wine in one place (down on the plain in Meursault). Not so 'folklorique', but a better tool to reach even higher quality levels. After six years working alongside Henri, Guillaume has been entirely responsible for the vinification of the reds since 2013 - Henri's contribution is henceforth entirely on the whites, but one senses this is really Guillaume's show now. Guillaume's major input on the reds was to end the practice of autmatically de-stemming everything - there is now some use of whole bunches and the wines have gained in definition and energy as a result, without losing the luxurious velvety richness and fruit depth that they have always had.
