    February 11, 2019 - Elected to not decant; left open for 3 hours. Deep garnet color. Gorgeous nose featuring red fruit/berries, licorice, floral notes and forest floor. Broad medium weight fruit with silky persistence, lightly substantial tannins and mineral acid. Great match for lobster with peas and herbs risotto. Harmonious now but with years to go.

    November 9, 2018 - On the nose, moss, dark fruited for Volnay, with some spice and cola. Full bodied for pinot, broad shouldered and structured and with a meatiness to it. Still quite youthful on the palate with ripe fruit, more cola, pomegranate, moss, iron, some mace, and cooler herbal notes. This is broad stroked with a chewiness to the fruit. If you told me this was a 4-5 year old less extracted new world pinot, I would believe you. Well made and pleasurable, but not what I was expecting. Very enjoyable nonetheless.

    October 18, 2018 - Medium ruby with some burnt brick outer highlights. Let open for about 45 min. Nose is cherry cola, charred oak, black pepper & damp soil. Nice acidity and gentle tannins that slowly build up. Pomegranate, cola, bruised cherry, raspberry.
    Not much reason to hold on it, but you could.

    December 22, 2017 - The 1999 Domaine Y. Clerget Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets is in a fantastic spot right now, perched just beneath the peak of its lifespan. It exhibits a marvelously complex bouquet of mushroom, raspberry, cherry, smoke, earth, spice, licorice and minerals. In the mouth the wine is much fresher than the nose would suggest, showing bright red fruit, minerality and utter seamlessness. Drink now.
