Domaine Chandon de Briailles Volnay les Caillerets 2009
|Region||France, Burgundy, Cote de Beaune|
|Brand||Domaine Chandon de Briailles|
An extremely ripe nose combines spiced plum, floral, mineral and prune notes that lead to attractively textured, suave, supple and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors blessed with seemingly endless reserves of extract that buffer the firm tannic spine on the long and serious finish. I very much like the underlying sense of tension and this should be most impressive in 10 to 15 years. Note that this is not a classic Caillerets as it's exceptionally ripe.
