(AG91-93 points) Dark plums, spices, smoke and menthol are some of the many nuances that emerge from Pousse d'Or's 2012 Volnay En Caillerets. This is a distinctly dark style of Caillerets that is deeply marked by the signature low yields of the year. There is considerable intensity in the glass, but my fear is that the wine is so concentrated that some of the terroir signatures are masked by the sheer richness of the fruit.

It comes from east-facing vines most planted in 1976. The nose is a little difficult to discern at this early stage: stubborn and refusing to come out and play. However the palate is lively with marmalade-tinged black fruit and a succulent, energetic finish that exerts a gentle grip. It does not quite have the vivacity of the best Cailleret that I have tasted, but it remains a very satisfactory wine. - Neal Martin
