The wine is really elegant, delicate, and almost ethereal. Floral and mineral notes on the palate with silky tannins. Beautiful aromatic body. Developing length and complexity as it sits in the mouth. We call it « the lace of Volnay ».

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets is a blend of two different vineyards, one adjacent to Marquis d'Angerville from Nicolas's father and older vineyards from his grandfather next to "Clos des 60 Ouvrees." This was entirely de-stemmed. It probably is blessed with the purest aromatic profile from Nicolas Rossignol, with macerated dark cherries and cassis infused with fine mineralite. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that lend this Volnay very good backbone. There is a saline touch at the side of the mouth and it boasts a long, lightly spiced finish. Excellent.
