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’.

The 2015 Volnay 1er Cru Les Caillerets "Ancienne Cuvée Carnot" would definitely be one of my picks from Bouchard Père this vintage. It has a lovely, expressive, terroir-driven bouquet with red cherry, crushed strawberry and wet limestone. There is impressive delineation here. The palate is medium-bodied, very well balanced with caressing, supple tannin that belie the structure underneath. I like the energy, the frisson here and the length lingers in the mouth, a tang of orange peel and Moroccan spice on the aftertaste. This comes recommended - chapeau!

Here the generous wood treatment presently fights somewhat with the menthol, cassis, spice and essence of black cherry liqueur-suffused nose. There is a beguiling texture to the vibrant, detailed and intensely mineral-driven medium weight flavors that coat the palate with dry extract while delivering marvelous persistence on the very firmly structured finish. This is very definitely built-to-age and it's going to need it. I would add that this is unlikely to make an especially good candidate for early consumption so patience absolutely required.
