2018 Domaine Marquis d'Angerville Volnay 1er Cru "Caillerets" (Previously $190)

SKU #1561718 92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aromas of red berries, cherries, dark chocolate and peonies mingle with nuances of soil and raw cocoa, introducing the 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets, a medium to full-bodied, deep and nicely concentrated wine that's fine-boned and elegant, with powdery tannins and a chalky, mineral finish. (WK) Inner quote mark (1/2020)

92-94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru includes an additional 0.23-hectare adjoining parcel of old vines purchased in 2013 that represents a 50% increase in acreage. It has a more reticent bouquet compared to its siblings, demanding coaxing from the glass to revealing morello cherry, raspberry preserve and rose petal aromas. Hints of blood orange develop with aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with darker berry fruit than d’Angerville’s other Volnay, and a little spicier, displaying impressive depth and grip toward the finish. It will require 5–6 years in bottle. Excellent. (NM) Inner quote mark (10/2019)

91-94 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark This is the first wine to exhibit any appreciable wood influence and even here it is a background element on the markedly ripe aromas of cassis plum liqueur and exotic tea-scented nose. The strikingly refined middle weight flavors brim with minerality on the rich but lilting finale where the only reproach is a subtle touch of warmth. Lovely stuff though make no mistake, it should amply reward extended cellaring. *Sweet Spot, Outstanding* Inner quote mark (4/2020)

K&L Notes

91-95 points Jasper Morris for Inside Burgundy: "A fine deep colour. Though in theory the Caillerets has the same percentage of new barrels as the others (20 to 25%), the wood is more marked on the nose, but don’t worry, this wine will soon digest it. There is really significant weight on the palate, and a smooth long finish. Raspberries and cream."
