Domaine Louis Boillot & Fils Volnay 1er Cru - "Les Caillerets" 2018 / 750 ml.

Item#: 94147

RP92+92–94 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Feb 2020
The 2018 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets exhibits attractive aromas of dark berries, spices, grilled squab and forest floor, followed by a medium to full-bodied, succulent and lively palate that’s concentrated and chalky, concluding with a long, mineral finish. Finishing up at 13.2% alcohol, this is an exquisitely balanced Caillerets that should offer a broad drinking window.

The 2018 Volnay Les Caillerets 1er Cru comes from a single plot of vines. It has a perfumed nose, the most mineral-driven of the four Volnays from Boillot and probably showing the best delineation. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins that lend a sense of strictness and correctness. You just want it to manifest more joie-de-vivre toward the finish. Maybe it will lighten up in bottle.

Where It's From

District / Cote de Beaune

View more wines from Cote de Beaune

Named after the city of Beaune, Cote de Beaune is home to some of the world's greatest Pinot Noirs (with Pinot Noir accounting for most of the district's production). The district makes up the Southern half of Burgundy's Cote d'Or. Top wines from here are classified as Grand Cru, while the next best group fall under the Premier Cru classification.

Region / Burgundy

View more wines from Burgundy

In eastern France lies the region of Burgundy, one of the legendary wine regions of the world. Burgundy, home to some of the most expensive wines in the world, is famous for its Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. With very few exceptions, red Burgundy is made from 100% Pinot Noir. And the reigning white of Burgundy, Chardonnay, can vary incredibly in style depending on where it was produced within the region.

Country / France

View more wines from France

The French did not invent winemaking. They simply perfected it. For centuries, France has been producing wines that inspire poetry, awe, and wonder; wines that blur the lines between nature, craftsmanship, cuisine and art. These are the wines that inspired cultures around the globe to follow in France’s footsteps, planting Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, Grenache, Merlot, Semillon and more.

Yet as often as they are emulated, the magic of their terroirs can never be duplicated. You may taste Cabernet from around the world, but perhaps none as elegant and regal as Bordeaux. You may try Pinot Noir or Chardonnay from various climates, but none with the earth-bound soul and ethereal reach of Burgundy.

The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles 1er Cru has a pretty bouquet of vivacious red currant, raspberry and crushed strawberry fruit, along with light rose petal notes and hints of quince and orange pith. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannins, and a keen thread of acidity lends real tension and precision toward the finish. This is one of Boillot’s best 2018s.
RP90+90–92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 13th Feb 2020
The 2018 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Evocelles is a touch more reserved, unwinding to reveal a brooding bouquet of cherries, berries, dark chocolate, grilled meats and sweet soil tones. Medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, it’s concentrated and introverted, with powdery structuring tannins and a mineral finish.

Blossoming in the glass with a lovely bouquet of raspberries, cherries, dried flowers and blood orange, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village is medium to full-bodied, lively and precise, with fine-boned structuring tannins and succulent acids. As usual, it’s largely derived from the lieu-dit Beaux Bruns, part of which is only entitled to the communal appellation.

The 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village comes from two climats, the majority from Les Beaux Bruns. This cru seemed to be missing some lift and energy on the nose, coming across rather static in the glass. The fleshy, ripe palate offers maraschino cherries, raspberry preserve and a touch of white pepper. Forward and willing to please, yet not a profound Chambolle-Musigny.

Offering up a pretty and expressive bouquet of cherries, raspberries and plums, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Village is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and succulent, with lively acids, an open core of fruit and gently chalky tannins that assert themselves with a touch of youthful grip on the finish.

The 2018 Marsannay Boivin is very fragrant and floral on the nose, where crushed violet and peony scents underlie the opulent black fruit. The palate is silky-smooth on the entry, one of Roty’s most polished Marsannay cuvées, with a slightly tarry, spicy finish. Great energy here. This should age well in bottle. Highly recommended.

Fresh and focused, with a line of sinewy tannins underneath cherry, boysenberry and earth flavors. Firm, yet also on the elegant side, this red shows plenty of character. Best from 2024 through 2032. 100 cases imported. (Bruce Sanderson)

The 2018 Pommard Vieilles Vignes has a perfumed, quite floral bouquet with iris petals and a touch of rose infusing the mixture of red and black fruit, a little earthy in style. The palate is medium-bodied with gentle grip on the entry, fine structure and a tad more expressive than the Volnay at this precise time. Good length here with a tingle on the tongue after the wine has departed.
RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 14th Jan 2021
As usual, the 2018 Pommard Vieilles Vignes is a touch more muscular than the corresponding Volnay, but it’s no less refined this year, delivering aromas of plums, cherries and spices, followed by a medium to full-bodied, velvety, nicely concentrated palate.
