Vinous,
(92-93) Barely medium red. Precise soil-driven aromas of purple fruits and dried flowers hint at a sexy carnal quality. Pliant and fruit-driven, conveying a restrained sweetness to its dark berry, spice and herb flavors...   (92-93) Barely medium red. Precise soil-driven aromas of purple fruits and dried flowers hint at a sexy carnal quality. Pliant and fruit-driven, conveying a restrained sweetness to its dark berry, spice and herb flavors. In a distinctly lighter style than the 2015 version but wonderfully spicy, pure and long. This classy Caillerets has the firm structural underpinning to age gracefully. (I will wait to taste Bitouzet's 2016 Volnay Clos des Chênes from bottle, as it finished its malolactic fermentation in cuve and was sulfured shortly before my visit and was tough going in November.)-ST

Burghound, April 2018
(91-93) This too is firmly reduced today. Otherwise the mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is finer if slightly less powerful while tightening up considerably on the super-saline and overtly mineral-driven finish...   (91-93) This too is firmly reduced today. Otherwise the mouth feel of the medium weight flavors is finer if slightly less powerful while tightening up considerably on the super-saline and overtly mineral-driven finish that offers sneaky good length. While qualitatively comparable to the Taillepieds, these are two very different wines.
