Intense notes of black berry fruit blended with oaky touches and delicately spiced. Full and fleshy on the palate, the structure of this wine is based on elegant tannins. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Advocate 89 points - A 2006 Nuits-St.-Georges Les Cailles ? originating in a recent Bouchard land acquisition ? displays impressive depth of roast game, with site-typical stony, chalky underpinnings. Tightly-knit and firm in feel, this gets its richness from its carnality, with a nod in the direction of dark berries. The overall impression is somewhat somber and austere, but formidably dense and persistent. I would revisit it in a couple of years, and anticipate its being worth following for several more thereafter. A portion of the fruit for this was not destemmed, an approach taken by Bouchard this year with a number of their grand crus as well. (Dec 2009)

Producer
Founded in 1731 in Beaune by Michel Bouchard, Bouchard Pere & Fils, is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy, perpetuating tradition for over 280 years and 9 generations. In 1775, Joseph Bouchard acquired his first vineyards in Volnay in the famous “Les Caillerets” climat and started to develop the family’s vineyard holdings. During the French Revolution, property belonging to the clergy and nobility was confiscated and put up for sale. Joseph’s son, Antoine Philibert Joseph Bouchard, seized the opportunity to extend the family’s vineyard holdings in Beaune including the famous “Beaune Greves Vigne de l’Enfant Jesus.” This desire to build up an exceptional estate in Cote d’Or endured through the generations and acquisitions in the best Villages were added throughout the 19th century and again in the early 20th century.
