Buy Bouchard Pere & Fils Volnay Premier Cru Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot
Exquisite fruit and spice aromas. On the palate, perfect harmony between structure and elegance: rich, complex and voluptuous. Very good ageing potential.
Wine Advocate 89 points - Hail destroyed most of Bouchard Peres Volnays, for example, there are only 400 liters of the Clos des Chenes that will be for private use. Still, there is a 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot that has a perfumed bouquet with blackberry, iodine and plenty of crushed violets, which Philippe Prost mentioned are typical from this plot. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent ripe tannins. The acidity is nicely judged and there is a gentle grip in the mouth. Solid and dense toward the finish, this is a solid, masculine Volnay that has the linearity of a Pommard. Drink 2016-2026+”,,, (Feb 2014)

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.
