Tasting Notes

Cask-sample; absolutely no new oak, yet oak still shows in the slender ’13 body; cool smokiness and blueberries; it’s along the masculine Volnay line, the part near Meursault. The wine is, let’s say, not without tannin. Sinewy, not seductive; built like a long-distance runner. Here Caroline is making a stylistic turn, toward more fruit and less oak, and yet this wine has usually been highly sophisticated and not very splashy. – Terry Theise
