Bouchard Volnay Caillerets Ancienne Cuvee Carnot 1er Cru 2011
Renowned and respected as one of the finest producers in Burgundy, Bouchard Père et Fils has truly become an institution, known for the exceptional quality of their wines and the diversity of its many vineyards. Founded in 1731, Bouchard Père et Fils has built up an estate of 130ha and, collectively, is the largest owner of Grand Crus (12ha) and Premier Crus (74ha) across the Côte d’Or Bouchard Père et Fils represents almost one hundred ‘climats’ or uniquely diverse vineyards, including prestigious monopoles such as ‘Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus’ and ‘Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte’.
A discreetly perfumed nose offers up a more elegant mix of red currant, wild dark berries, cassis, spice and stone aromas. There is excellent richness and first-rate phenolic maturity to the silky-textured middle weight flavors that brim with mouth coating dry extract on the long, serious, balanced and saline-suffused finish. This is very much built on its minerality and should amply repay longer-term storage. Score: 90-93 Points; Tasted: April 2013; Drink: 2023+; Issue: 50; Outstanding; Allen Meadows - Burghound
