This is really pretty tonight and in a really good place. Well balanced with penetrating red fruit, earth, sous bois, perhaps some floral notes, firm minerality at its core and a long satisfying finish. While this has a softer mouthfeel, there's underlying sauvage characteristics that make this hard to call feminine. All in all, an excellent Volnay that's drinking beautifully with a couple of hours of double decanting.
Colour still a lively ruby purple, no fading at edges. On the nose attractive black cherry fruit with some lifted spice, a suggestion of secondary development with some background farmyard. Very precise and correct on the palate. Super smooth, with wild strawberry and ripe raspberry and a long, lingering finish. Acidity still lively. Very satisfying Volnay, drinks well over a couple of hours before the seductive fruit fades a little. Has probably reached its plateau of maturity and should show well for a further 5-6 years. Highly recommended.

(Pousse d'Or Volnay Caillerets) Medium colour with some purple reflections. High-toned aromatics are the main theme. Well-mamanaged tannins and a dark, slightly reductive element. The fruit in the mid-palate is lovely before fading into a medium length.
