Les Caillerets

Grape Variety:Pinot Noir
Drink:2015 - 2024

Product:

Philippe Bouchard, Chateau de Savigny, Les Caillerets, Vonlay 1er Cru, Burgundy, 2010

Producer:

Michael Schuster

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Ripe fruit marked by new oak. Lively fruit dominated by its new wood tannin; rendered tough by its new wood, and likely to remain over-wooded; medium length. Good.

Steven Spurrier

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Dense young colour, purple rim. Very good concentration of red and black summer fruits on the nose, firm and elegant structure on the palate. Quite a powerful wine yet quite constrained, well-compacted fruit that needs time to absorb the oak; will be good long term.

Sebastian Thomas

Tasting: Volnay 1er Cru 2010

Very volatile nose, but appealing red fruit underneath. Slightly unripe on palate, hard green tannins with little finesse in evidence, highlighted by pointed acidity. Quite hard on the medium finish.
