We consider this cuvée to be the consistently most outstanding red wine of this estate. It has grace and power combined, round on the palate, with fine, long tannins, excellent density; a brooding beauty with depth and character galore but sadly of extremely limited availability. The Bitouzets own a mere 0.15 hectare of Caillerets. The vines were planted in 1981. Magnums are always part of our program with the Caillerets.
  • v93-95

The 2019 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru comes from a 0.15-hectare plot. It has a charming bouquet with beautifully defined red cherries and wild strawberry fruit intermixed with bergamot and light tea leaf aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with fleshy ripe red berry fruit, fine delineation and very supple in the mouth. This is an absolutely delicious Volnay that demonstrates the pedigree of this Premier Cru and it has superb length. This has great potential.

The 2019 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets opens in the glass with aromas of sweet berry fruit, spices, rose petal and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, it's built around melting tannins and surprisingly tangy acids for the vintage.
