Much paler in color than the regular villages, this upper slope single parcel behind the winery has very light, well draining soils. This is why the wine is so airy, pure, delicate and just plain lovely. 200 cases made. This one was my fave of the 3 villages this year, each quite distinct and qualitatively excellent.
“The 2014 Volnay Clos de la Caves had not been racked and contains 30% whole bunch fruit. The nose was “sleeping” when I tasted it and clearly was awaiting its racking. However, there seems to be sufficient fruit locked in. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, quite firm tannin and black fruit with touches of spice, quite elegant towards the finish that lingers nicely in the mouth — leaving a slight tingle on the tongue (perhaps due to the whole bunch!). Very fine and feminine. ” 89-91 points Neil Martin
