Prunier Volnay 1er cru “Caillerets” 2016


Michel Prunier and his daughter Estelle make honest, traditional red and white Burgundies from their small domaine in Auxey-Duresses. This Volnay 1er cru Caillerets is the finest wine in their lineup, and shows the brilliance of this exceptional terroir. This wine has many happy years ahead of it, but the bottle we decanted last night was delightful.

The nose is rich and enticing, showing violets, dark chocolate and raspberries. The mouth is balanced, silky, and very long. Alongside a smooth, chalky minerality, look for notes of cassis and forest floor, with a silky, velvet mouthfeel that’s long, and very fine. If you can keep your hands off of it, this wine will be singing in 3-5 years, and even better in ten.
