The Volnay Caillerets 2005 from Lucien Le Moine is a surprisingly accessible and forward wine. In the nose red and blue berry fruit – notes of raspberries, blueberries and hints of cherries. The bouquet is wonderfully spiced with violets, a nice stony minerality and a touch of oak. On the palate very impressive weight and power for the terroir – quite openly knit for a 2005. Really like the powerful, fruity and openly knit style … a exiting wine with it’s spicy minerality. A lovely, balanced and enjoyable wine … a nice surprise currently.
