There is a hint of menthol to the very cool and pure nose that offers up a variety of spice elements on the red currant and cherry aromas. The vibrant and more obviously mineral-inflected middle weight flavors possess good cut and punch while concluding in a sneaky long finale.
The 2017 Volnay Caillerets 1er Cru needs a little coaxing from the glass, eventually offering redcurrant, raspberry preserve and light crushed stone aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with good density in the mouth, very harmonious with a fine bead of acidity. This Cailleret feels quite tender towards the finish with a touch of spice lingering on the aftertaste. So pretty.
