Location

Appellation: VOLNAY Premier Cru Les Caillerets Grape variety: Pinot Noir Colour: Red Surface area: 0.40 hectare Age of vines: 25 years Exposure and elevation: South-east, upper slope

Terroir

Les Caillerets are small stones in the vineyard that are very useful for draining the soil and reflecting light. Pinot Noir is particularly happy in this clay-limestone soil with very calcareous sub-soils.

Tasting

This wine offers a very nice velvety aspect, as well as substance. The tannins are tight when young, particularly on the finish. It deserves to be forgotten about in the cellar for 5 to 10 years.

Vintage

A spring-time just like summer. It was a very precocious vintage, starting off with trumpets blaring but already less festive by 14th July. Rain and storms; hope was lost... We were to harvest at the very beginning of September and after draconian sorting of the crop: we would witness the birth of crisp, light and fruity wines in red; whites would be taut, just as we like them, and can be kept for more than ten years (recommended).
