Bright ruby-red. Noble, nuanced nose combines cherry, smoke, minerals, fresh herbs and mint; with aeration, this showed hints of superripeness. Sweeter and fuller than the Santenay samples but quite light on its feet, with no loss of flavor precision. Finishes with firm but fine tannins, dusty minerality and a late hint of kirsch.
Another notch up in complexity and elegance with a refinement and purity that is extraordinary with expansive and spicy black pinot fruit aromas and detailed, sweet, sappy and dense flavors that possess a really lovely textured and persistent finish and impeccable balance. A terrific effort that should repay medium term cellaring.
The floral aromas of the 2002 Volnay En Caillerets leads to a structured, medium-bodied personality filled with minerals, rocks, blackberries, and black cherries. This concentrated effort’s core of fruit is deep. Projected maturity: 2008-2017.
