The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru En Cailleret was the last cuvee to complete its malolactic fermentation, three weeks before I visited. It comes from east-facing vines most planted in 1976. The nose is a little difficult to discern at this early stage: stubborn and refusing to come out and play. However the palate is lively with marmalade-tinged black fruit and a succulent, energetic finish that exerts a gentle grip. It does not quite have the vivacity of the best Cailleret that I have tasted, but it remains a very satisfactory wine. Dec 2013, www.robertparker.com
